A surgeon is called by the ER for a 40 y.o male with olecranon # who needs surgery. The surgeon is conducting a research trial that is comparing tension band wiring with pre-contoured locking plate fixation. The surgeon is currently busy performing another surgery in the OR but the OR would be ready to do the olecranon case right after the surgeon finishes with his first case. Since the surgeon is currently operating he sends his medical student, who is new on the service, to get verbal consent from the patient for the surgery and for participation in the research trial. List 3 problems with obtaining consent for the surgery and the research participation in this scenario.
Medical expert: student may be unable to explain procedure and risks appropriately
Professional: Surgeon not meeting patient
Verbal consent only appropriate when written consent not possible
Manager: surgeon not managing time appropriately
