Code: PH-6500.1500-180

Programs that are responsible for ensuring that children who are in need of medical care of a life-saving nature receive the treatment they need in situations where the parent or legal guardian is either unavailable or refuses to give consent for treatment. Also included are programs that make available copies of medical consent forms that parents can sign when they know in advance that they will be unavailable to provide consent for emergency medical treatment.
