Excellent Article on Informed Consent

This article was sent to me by a friend who also has suffered from the illegal and injudicious injection of Versed without "informed consent."  This problem is so common as to have become "Standard of Care."   Of course the fact that using Versed against us to gain compliance and (hopefully) cause amnesia in order to conceal medical people's actions from the patient without INFORMED CONSENT is ILLEGAL!  Somehow this little fact is entirely lost on the medical community at present.  Here is a lawyer's take on the issue.

Informed Consent is the Law: Stop, Talk and Show Should be the Standard - Hormones Matter

Of course my treatment went beyond simply omitting and/or deliberately concealing facts about the surgery, it also went to "informed consent" for the so-called anesthesia, the consent for a crna to supply the anesthesia instead of a doctor and all the rest.  "Standard of Care" appears to be no standards at all and has completely eclipsed the laws on informed consent.  It's a "caveat emptor" (let the buyer beware) world out there in medical lala land.
