Tattoo Parental Consent Form

Tattoo Parental Consent FormEverybody should be able to make informed decisions regarding their medical care. Medical treatments can be invasive, so patients should be able to decide in light of known risks that their bodies should be treated. Thus, before medical personnel are allowed to provide treatment to patients they must obtain the so-called informed consent.

A patient’s informed consent can be a legally binding requirement in which patients are provided with a full and complete description of his or her physical state and the treatment suggested by the physician who is acting as the patient’s physician. After receiving this information the patient must give the doctor their consent to treat before any form of treatment can be delivered. Without informed consent from the patient any health professional is not allowed to provide treatment.

Decision Making Capacity

In some instances patients don’t have the capabilities to fully understand their treatment options and the risks/benefits of each. In other situations patients may not be able communicate their decision to health professionals. In these situations the patient is considered not to possess the proper capacity to make decisions. An individual from the family or court-appointed representative, can take over informed consent.

Patients who are heavily influenced by their emotions, such as anxiety or fear for instance they could be judged as not possessing decision making capacity. Patients who are in the state of unconscious cannot make decisions on alone, and external parties are required to obtain consent instead.

Items in an Tattoo Parental Consent Form

Certain elements are common to all consent forms:

The patient’s medical condition/diagnosis

The procedure recommended by the physician in charge

The risks and benefits that come with this procedure

Alternative treatments are also offered, as are their risks and benefits

The potential risks and rewards with refusing any treatment at all

These details must not only be documented in a written document however, they must have a discussion with the patient. This way, he can be fully aware of the specifics of the situation and can get direct answers to any queries that might have arisen.
