I suppose this is a troll post or need to report to ur dept head


It is untrue what u document down means 100% safe.
In lawsuit, if what u document conflicts with what the plaintiff say, during cross examination they will ask.

Basically, their angle of attack is inadequate consent.
The cxr example quoted (not sure real or not) is a little extreme. But I do agree that patient may not always understand what we document down onto our consult note. Come on la, you think a 80 year old uncle will understand 2 pages worth of consent, all the risks and benefits and alternative available?
