Verbal Consent Options

If your organization obtains and collects verbal consents due to a patient’s physical limitation or for telehealth visits, there are a number of options for properly documenting this consent type.

Most facilities have guidelines and policies in place on how to properly obtain and document consent. Staff members should follow those accordingly.

However, if your facility does not already have a process in place, HealtheConnections recommends guidelines when developing a policy, which you can read about in detail on our website, at any time.
