Parental Consent Form
Protecting your children while you travel means more than getting a sitter. To be absolutely safe, you should provide written authorization for a responsible adult to approve any necessary emergency medical treatment for your children.
Unless a child’s injuries are life-threatening, hospital personnel and physicians cannot treat him or her without parental or guardian consent. As a result, your child may suffer unnecessary discomfort while waiting for you to be reached to approve stitching a cut or setting a broken arm.
Each time you go out of town, complete a ‘Consent for Medical Treatment of a Minor’ form. A separate, dated consent form is necessary for each of your children each time you leave town.
