Informed Consent Breach?

leave a comment »

Facts of the Case:

Ellen Mann sued her podiatrist, alleging that the defendant doctor failed to render proper post-operative care, that the defendant did not obtain informed consent to the surgery, and that his failures constituted medical malpractice.

Patient Mann acknowledged that she signed a form that established her consent to the surgery, but she claimed that the defendant did not disclose that the procedure could have caused a permanent deformity.

Thus, Mann’s counsel contended that the defendant did not obtain Mann’s informed consent.

Her lawyer also contended that the defendant wrongly disregarded his original belief that the pin could not be removed until four weeks had passed.
