Podcast #62: Pediatric Consent

Run Time: 4 minutes974f655c-eb69-4601-9c26-cc9231abbcd0

Author: Dr. Mark Kozlowski

Educational Pearls:

  • Treat any pediatric patient first, call parents later!
  • If a sixteen-year-old patient comes in to the ED for their child, the sixteen-year-old mother can consent to treatment of the child.
  • Emancipated minors can consent for themselves.
  • Minors can also consent for treatment for psychiatric related issues, drug abuse, pregnancy, STD check-up, or alcohol abuse.
