 SECTION 2                                 AUTHORIZATION for medical treatment of minors
    If your child needs medical, dental, health or hospital services, under law, you as a parent must give permission. Naturally, if you are with
your child you can give permission as the need arises. You can prepare for those unexpected times when you are not with your child by filling
out this authorization form. Using this form, you can give permission to other adults to act for you, in you absence, regarding the treatment of
your child. This is a legal document. After you complete this form, give a copy to each adult you have named to act on your behalf. If your child
needs unexpected medical treatment, the responsible adult should present this document to the appropriate person -- physician, dentist, or
hospital representative.
    When a true emergency exists a child may be treated without parental consent. This will happen when a physician determines the child
needs immediate medical care and that an attempt to obtain parental consent would result in a delay which would increase the risk to the child’s
life or health.
