Child Medical Consent Form
The child medical consent form grants an authorized member of a hospital staff to operate on and treat a child. The document, once filled out, ensures that the parent or guardian allows the doctors, nurses and other hospital staff to use their judgement as they see fit to treat the child to the best of their ability. The signed form indicates that the parent/guardian is responsible for all charges connected to the treatment and diagnosis of the child in question.
