The right of the patient to consent to the provision of medical services

  1. The patient has the right to agree or refuse to provide specific medical services after receiving the relevant information.
  2. The patient, including a minor under the age of 16, has the right to consent to the examination or other medical services provided by the doctor.
  3. The legal representative of a minor patient, who is completely incapable of work or who is unable to give consent consciously, shall have the right to express the consent specified in paragraph 1. In the absence of a legal representative, this right may be exercised by a specific guardian in relation to the examination.

Explanation: permission to provide medical services, except for the “emergency” mode, the issue of saving lives must be in writing. The patient has the right to read the contents carefully before signing it and to seek clarification from the nurse or physician if any aspect of the proposed consent to the medical procedure is unclear to him. The patient has the right to refuse to agree to a medical procedure , after which it can not be carried out. In this case, the patient must sign a statement stating the reasons for the lack of consent. The doctor requires this, as the absence of such a statement may make him responsible for not continuing the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
