Conscious Sedation Consent Form
The conscious sedation consent form should be used to ensure that patients have a complete understanding of the sedation that will be provided along with their treatment. The document is also used to provide consent for said sedation. Each statement should be reviewed by the patient and should be questioned if necessary. Once the patient has a total comprehension of the information relayed in each paragraph, and all inquiries have been satisfied, they may provide their initials where applicable.
