PMID:  10166266     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Providers have a responsibility to inform patients about the care they receive. With this responsibility, however, come liabilities. Agencies need to be aware of both the responsibilities and liabilities involved with informed consent and address them in everyday operations--failure to comply with the federal requirements can result in termination or nonrenewal of a provider's Medicare agreement.
