It is the responsibility of the doctor to inform you of any possible treatment plans before they are carried out. Whether the doctor wishes to prescribe you a drug or believes that surgery is required to treat you, the doctor must obtain your informed consent before proceeding with a treatment plan. Any doctor who proceeds with a treatment plan without your consent has violated your rights and should be held accountable for their irresponsible actions. Taking medical actions in order to save a person’s life or save a person from further serious harm is the only true exception to the requirement to obtain informed consent. If your rights have been violated by a doctor that did not obtain your informed consent, contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights.
