The health care provider needs your oral consent to start treatment. As a general rule, this consent is not expressly obtained. If you come to the hospital for examination, operation or admission, we will assume that you agree with what to do. However, in some respects, the health care provider will seek a separate agreement. A health care provider must always obtain a patient`s consent before the patient can be treated. However, this is not possible from time to time. For example, if a person is unconscious, has dementia or is temporarily unable to make up his or her mind following a stroke. In such cases, it is found that the individual is not in a position to decide on his treatment at this stage. We call this an „inability to decide/give consent.“ These decisions must then be made by someone else. It could be, for example, someone from his own family circle. If you come to the hospital, we will do everything we can to help you as best you can.
Our goal is to ensure the best health care and treatment. And we do it in partnership with you. Including providing information and business experiences. By seeking help from a health care provider, you enter into a medical treatment agreement. They entrust us with health care. This may include an examination, treatment or advice. This relationship between the health care provider and the patient is governed by the provisions of the Medical Treatment Contracts Act or WGBO.
