Sabir Alwy; Afdhal

Hasanuddin University


Approval of Informed Consent based on available data was found as much as 80 percent of the 300 cases examined at MKDKI (Indonesian Medical Disciplinary Honorary Council) found in the implementation of Informed Consent was incomplete, it is not clear if information is provided before informed consent is carried out and there are some Informed Consent agreements signed by people who have no competence or authority. What are the consequences that can arise with the approval of the informed consent? and what are the legal consequences?. This paper is an empirical study based on field data and then carried out a qualitative analysis and is supported by a statute approach, conceptual approach and medical law (medicolegal approach). The results found that informed consent was incomplete, unclear and not signed by those who did not have competence or authority, because doctors are too busy with other work so do not have time to meet face to face with patients or the patients family, doctors do not have enough knowledge or understanding of the law, the importance of medical approval from the legal aspect, and there are still doctors who think that the patient or family the patient does not have knowledge of medical science so there is no need to get an explanation or information about the medical action as a result there can be a legal defect or illegal actions
