Challenges with Patient Consent in the Hospital Setting

 Toni Aguilar, General Counsel - Healthcare Operations for Baylor Scott & White Health , will lead a lively discussion on Informed Consent and Consent to Treatment issues in the hospital setting. When is a child not a child? Who wins when it’s incompetent patient’s mom vs. girlfriend vs. ex-wife and they all threaten litigation if their wishes are not followed? What are the limits of presumed consent in an emergency? This session will also cover timing issues with consent, language hurdles, ethical considerations, and special issues when patients refuse treatment. The session will be moderated by James Peacock, Shareholder and member of Greenberg Traurig’s Healthcare Practice Section.
