Medical Consent for the Treatment of a Minor
The medical consent for the treatment of a minor is a simple but important document that grants authority to a designated adult to care for the child of the signatory in the case of a medical emergency. The authority is temporary, the start and end date will be provided within the document. As it is not always possible or practical to contact the parents or legal guardians of a child when there is a medical emergency, this document allows the designated adult to provide minor first aid and seek emergency treatment as they deem necessary.
