I'm sure there are tests, procedures, treatments, information that you would want to give your prior consent for

This lady is fighting to enforce the same courtesy, you'd like to enjoy

at the hospital I volunteer at, we are instructed to test for HIV for every patient automatically even if they don't ask for it. it is just mandatory. BUT if they specifically say they don't want the test, then no test. some special law makes it possible over here.

I just wanted to add that i used to work in a family practice and everyone in the office had access to a patient's hiv status b/c the results were faxed in.

How did they perform surgery without testing her for HIV? Wouldn't that be extremely stupid and careless for the doctor and medical staff that performed the actual surgery??? Something does not add up....

the same country that recently passed a law (in the last quarter of last year) that says non-disclosure is not a crime even in the event of transmission?

y'all progressive as hell out there

Yeah, I thought that if you are pregnant they automatically test you. I remember signing a permission paper both times, but I saw on the tele that some places don't have that requirement.
