Abstract

All medical treatments must be taken based on the patient's agreement. Patients in Emergency Unit can have a high risk of disability and even death. Many cases of patient prosecutions occur due to informed consent, either because the information is incomplete or because the doctor does not ask for written consent document. At present, there are still various formats of informed consent in several hospitals, and the procedures for informed consent are also different. This can be caused by different regulations that have been made by the hospital or because of the lack informations of the doctor's about informed consent. Data was collected from interviews with doctors in the Emergency Units and taking the informed consent format at the Emergency Unit. The results showed that the percentage of hospital followed based on standard format was the Reksodiwiryo Hospital and Central BMC General Hospital with complete results of 100%. Followed by Semen Padang Hospital and RSI. SitiRahmah with 97.7%, YosSudarso Hospital 84.6%, RSUD. Rasidin 35.6%, RS. Aisyiyah 32.5%, Hospital. Bhayangkara Hospital 29.8% and Hospital. Selaguri16.7%. The average hospital in the Padang City didnt not followed based on standard format from the Ministry of Health and Medical Councils Indonesia under consideration that they didn’t know or have used the old format for years and are reluctant to replace it.
