Patient consent is mandatory for every client under the care Rainville Chiropody Professional Corporation. This is Ontario government law Health Care Consent act, 1996 S.O. 1996,c.2 Sched A. We are also governed by the College of Chiropodist on how we handle client consent College of Chiropodist - Patient Relations- Informed Consent. This includes consent to treatment and consent to our financial policy.
Failure for a client to give consent will result in the individual not being treated at any of our clinical sites. If an employee fails to obtain authorized consent via a signature and allows the client to have treatment then the liability and the onus falls on the employee who allowed the client to enter the clinical space without consent. If this were ever the case, the employee will be subject to immediate termination.
