Consent for Medical Treatment of a Minor






When to use Consent for Medical Treatment of a Minor

You and your child are not always in the same place at the same time. As a result, there is a possibility that your child could become hurt or ill while they are in the care of another adult. In order to ensure that your child can receive prompt, necessary medical attention when you are not by his or her side, it is important to provide other trusted adults with a complete consent for medical treatment of a minor form while your child is in their care.

Overview

Consent for Medical Treatment of a Minor paperwork is generally filled out and given to any adult in charge of your child’s well-being and care when you are not around. Adults that may require this authorization include: Teachers/school administrators, nannies, coaches, grandparents and other family members, trusted adult family friends, youth pastors, step-parents, daycare providers and babysitters. Basically, if you are not going to be in a position to be immediately available to give authorization for medical treatment in the event that your child is involved in an accident, you should consider giving the adult in charge of your child’s well-being a completed consent for medical treatment of a minor form before you leave your child’s side.

This may seem like an extreme precaution. But should your child ever require immediate care that you are not in a position to authorize, you will thank yourself for having taken this step. Please note that you can be specific about the kinds of permission you are granting and the limitations of those permissions. For example, you may grant a coach this authorization but only during times that your child is at practice, games or traveling for his or her sport of choice. You can also choose to rescind and/or update these permissions as you see fit.
