PA Supreme Court: Dentists Performing Surgery Must Personally Obtain Informed Consent Directly From Patients

A recent ruling from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has held that a medical provider performing any type of surgery has a non-delegable duty to obtain informed consent directly from its patients. This ruling, issued in the case of Megan and Robert Shinal v.
