Medical malpractice and the boundaries of informed consent

Medical professionals in Aurora carry a heavy responsibility. Not only do they hold their patient's health and well-being in their hands, but they also have a duty to reasonably inform a patient about the care they are to receive so that the patient can provide informed consent to any medical procedure. Failing to obtain informed consent can lay the foundation for a medical malpractice lawsuit should something go wrong during the operation. Yet, even defining the boundaries of informed consent can be a challenging legal issue.
