Bariatric Risk Mitigation Strategies
Most common inadvertent risks taken by bariatric surgeons
A six-part series brought to you by MGIS PhysicianProtect | BARIATRIC™
Risk #1. Non-specific informed consent.
Informed consent is not just a document – it is a process. Bariatric surgery is an elective procedure and most quality programs provide formal educational programs for patients preparing to undergo the procedure.
It is imperative that both the consent process and signed informed consent is documented in the medical record. The informed consent document should include language that is procedure specific to the risks, benefits and alternatives to adequately defend a potential case in court.
