Consent for Treatment
All patients who come to Nationwide Children’s for medical treatment need to have a signed consent for treatment on file. If a child under 18 comes to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for treatment with someone other than their parent or legal guardian, we need an authorization from the parent or legal guardian to allow them to sign medical consent for the child. The authorization form names someone over the age of 18, chosen by the parent or legal guardian, to seek medical treatment and sign consent for the child. For example, a baby-sitter, teacher or other family member. Make sure that anyone caring for your child who may need to seek medical attention for your child in your absence, has a completed authorization form. Download the consent form here.
