Risk Management



Comanagement consent form

Obtain informed consent for comanaged surgical care

Patients need to know which care will be delegated to a comanaging optometrist. They must be informed that they may contact the ophthalmologist and return to him for care at any time. OMIC advises ophthalmologists who comanage with community optometrists to ask patients to sign  Consent for comanagement of surgical patients. Ophthalmologists who comanage with optometrists in their own practice should obtain oral consent and document the patient’s agreement in the medical record. Ophthalmologists in Florida should use the FL comanagement consent form to meet the requirements of state law.

Please see Comanagement of surgical patients for other risk management recommendations.
