Post your response to the following: What is the importance of obtaining written consent from patients prior to receiving medical treatment? What are the implications of failing to do so? Does a medical emergency alter the conditions of written consent? Why or why not? Explain your answers. According to Integrated publishing (n.d.), This right to be touched only when and in the manner authorized is the foundation of the requirement that consent must be obtained before medical treatment is initiated.” It is important that written consent is obtained from patients before they receive medical treatment. In the medical setting consent refers to a patient’s expressed or implied agreement to submit to an examination or treatment. According to an informed consent the health care provider must give a patient the necessary information which is required to make a knowledgeable decision to be made on the anticipated procedure that will be performed on the patient. Individuals have the right not to be touched without first giving his or her permission to be touched. If an individual’s is touched without his or her consent to be touched could result in the healthcare provider being responsible for an assault and battery on the patient (Integrated publishing, n.d.).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
