Dr. Sharda Jain
Clear Communication
Doctors should communicate
in a language and manner that
the patient can understand.
Avoid using medical jargon,
and ensure the patient
comprehends the proposed
treatment or procedure.
Detailed Information
Provide a comprehensive
explanation of the
diagnosis, recommended
treatment, potential risks,
benefits, and alternatives.
Use written materials if
necessary.
Time and Space
Allocate adequate
time for the patient
to consider their
options and ask
questions.
Rushing the consent
process can lead to
misunderstandings.
Patient Questions
Encourage patients to ask
questions and address
them thoroughly.
Document all discussions
and questions in the
patient's medical record.
Consent Forms
Use standardized
consent forms
that clearly outline the
procedure, its risks, and
alternatives.
Ensure that both the
doctor and the patient or
their representative sign
and date the form.
Witnesses
If possible, have a
witness present
during the consent
process to attest
that it was
conducted
appropriately
Patient's Volition
Ensure that the
patient is providing
consent voluntarily
without any undue
pressure or coercion.
Verify that the
patient is competent
to provide consent.
Exploring Alternatives
Discuss alternative
treatment options and
their risks and benefits.
Document the patient's
choice if they opt for a
different treatment than
the one recommended.
Emergency Situations
In emergency situations,
obtain consent from a
family member or legal
representative if the
patient is unable to
provide informed consent.
Document the emergency
circumstances and the
reason for the surrogate's
decision.
Follow-up Documentation
Maintain detailed records of
the informed consent
process, including
discussions, questions, and
any changes in the patient's
decision.
Accurate documentation is
crucial for legal protection.
Remember
Medical negligence cases in India are complex and can
vary based on specific circumstances.
It's essential for doctors to consult with legal experts
and their professional associations to ensure that they
are following best practices in obtaining informed
consent and mitigating the risk of litigation.
Additionally, adhering to medical ethics and maintaining
open communication with patients can go a long way in
preventing disputes and litigation.
