Consenting to treatment is not a waiver of your right to bring a malpractice claim. When you sign a consent form, this is an indication that you have been told about the risks of the procedure and agreed to undergo the procedure or receive the treatment anyway. In general, except in extreme emergencies, you will need to consent prior to receiving any type of treatment. In fact, when you enter a hospital, you typically sign a blanket consent form giving permission for general treatments you will receive.

However, when you sign a consent form, the form does not provide consent to permit the doctor to make mistakes.
