I am trying to gather information that has to do with informed consent in Pennsylvania for a paper I am writing. I found an act that mentions it...act 13 of 2003 section 504, but it says nothing about the role of the nurse, it only talks about the physican. I thought the role of the nurse was to WITNESS that the patient recieved informed consent....right? I can't seem to find any laws in Pennsylvania. Are there actual LAWS / LEGISLATION that mention what the RN's role is? or does it depend on the facility the RN works at? if you can, will you please include a website with your answer so I may use it as a reference? THANKS!!!!
