Never, ever sign a "blood transfusion" document without an attorney's help. I'm serious. Please see many of my previous posts where I expound on this very problem with the "blood transfusion" language being used as a vehicle for lulling the patient into signing an uninformed "informed consent!" I have the real document on reproduced on here, a real copy, the one I actually signed... If you want to see a genuine, unaltered "blood transfusion" document, which is actually (sinisterly) a blanket consent. Anyway, this person's experience with a blood transfusion document is the same as mine. My glasses were gone, IV in place, 20,000 (more or less) medical people running around, asking me the same stupid questions over and over, threatening to give me g/a against my will and to induce it in the preop room, etc. I was STUNNED to find out that this blood transfusion document was actually a vague, all inclusive (illegal) "informed consent." This is NOT funny.

I wonder if there are any videos of me naked for my wrist surgery? I found out later there were "sales reps" in the room... Were they looking at my crotch and making jokes? I did NOT expect to find that there were people other than my medical team spying on me. I can't stay awake regardless of my wishes and precise instructions, but they can come in and watch? Maybe videotape?
