Consent to Treatment in Emergency Situations

Where the person for whom the treatment is being proposed is apparently experiencing severe

suffering or is at risk of sustaining serious bodily harm if the treatment is not administered promptly, it is considered to be an emergency.

For situations involving consent to treatment in emergency situations, a paramedic shall comply with the applicable directions contained in the Basic Life Support Patient Care Standards (BLS PCS).
