Voluntary Consent

Purpose of voluntary consent

I hereby request and consent to the performance of Acupuncture treatments and other procedures within the scope of the practice of Acupuncture on me, on my child, a child that is in my care, or on the patient for whom I am legally responsible.


I hereby voluntarily consent to be treated with Acupuncture by Glenn Delikan. I understand that I may be treated with the application of insertion of sterile acupuncture needles and/or finger pressure and/or the application of heat to the skin and/or Cupping/Gua Sha and/or Chinese dietary therapy.


I understand that the practice of Acupuncture is not an exact science and there are no guarantees that have been made to me as a result of treatment.


Possible side effects/ healing response
I have been informed that Acupuncture is a generally safe method of treatment, but that it may have some side effects including: bruising, numbness or tingling near the needle sites that may last a few days and dizziness or fainting. Burns and /or scarring are a potential risk of Moxibustation and Cupping, or when treatment involves the use of heat lamps. Bruising is a common side effect of cupping. Unusual risks of Acupuncture include: spontaneous miscarriage, nerve damage and organ puncture, including lung puncture (pneumothorax). Infection is another possible risk, although sterile disposable needles are used with all patients to maintain the safest and most sterile treatment environment possible.

I do not expect the clinical staff to be able to anticipate and explain all possible risks and complications of treatment, and I wish to rely on the clinical staff to exercise judgment during the course of treatment, based upon the facts then known is in my best interest. I understand that results are not guaranteed.


Your information
I understand the clinical and administrative staff may review my patient records, but all my records will be kept confidential and will not be released without my written consent.


By selecting the ‘I understand that by ticking this box I agree to the voluntary consent & privacy policy’ tick box option to confirm my, or the person in my cares appointment booking, I show that I have read, or have had read to me or them, the above consent to treatment, I have/they have been told about the risks and benefits of acupuncture and other procedures, and have had an opportunity to ask questions. I intend this consent to cover the entire course of treatment for my/their present condition and for any future condition(s) for which I/they seek treatment.


Medical Referral
I understand that if there is a worsening of my ailment or condition, or if it does not improve within the time estimated by my practitioner, or if a new ailment or condition arises, that I should consult my GP. If you request that Glenn Delikan discuss or share his records of your case with another healthcare provider he will gladly do so provided that you have given him written permission. This is a professional standard among all licensed healthcare providers.


Infectious Disease/ Clean Needle Procedure
I understand that infectious organisms can be carried through the air, through physical contact, and through body fluids. I understand that my Acupuncture practitioner uses Universal Precautions to guard against the spread of infection. I understand that Glenn Delikan follows strict clean needle procedures. Only sterile, single-use disposable Acupuncture needles are used and are discarded in a biohazard container.


Patient Responsibility
I understand that it is my responsibility as a patient to inform Acupuncturist practitioner Glenn Delikan about all aspects of my health and that as treatment progresses, to inform my practitioner of any changes that occur. I have carefully read and understand the above information. I am aware of what I am agreeing to and have felt free to ask questions.

CONSENT TO TREAT A MINOR CHILD
I authorise Glenn Delikan to administer Acupuncture as deemed necessary to my child or a child in my care.

Reasonable suspicion that the Clinic has been exposed to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases

If a person who has visited the clinic is diagnosed with Covid-19 within 14 days from my last contact with them I will take the following steps and precautions.

If myself or a staff member at any time had a proximity to this person under two metres or were exposed to a cough or sneeze, I will stay home for seven days from my last contact with them and only return to work if neither of the three cardinal symptoms of Covid-19 have not appeared (as defined in Appendix 2 of the BAcC guide to COVID-19).

If either myself or a staff member is diagnosed with Covid-19 under 14 days or less after non-socially distanced contact with a patient I later discover has also been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the same period, I will follow the HSE guidance regarding Covid-19 and RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013).

Additionally I will inform all patients who had been present during the suspected exposure period and cancel all future appointments until I have followed all the steps outlined in Section 3 of the BAcC guide to COVID-19.

If I have reasonable suspicion that the practice premises have been exposed to a person with a case of Covid-19, all access to the building must be suspended until a deep clean can take place.

This also applies if I am informed by other users of the premises that they have reasonable suspicion that the building has may have been exposed.

The legal basis for processing

Under Data Protection Law, there are various grounds which are considered to be a ‘legal basis for processing’.

The legal basis for processing should be determined by the Data Controller.

Where we are the Data Processor, the legal basis is determined by the Customer. Typically, the legal basis in this scenario is:

•    ‘processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest’

 

Where we are the Data Controller, the legal basis for processing is based on:

•    ‘processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the controller’

It should be noted that in some circumstances this legal basis may vary, however, we always operate in full compliance with Data Protection Law and will only process data with a fair and reasonable legal basis for doing so.

We will only retain information for as long as is necessary to deliver the service safely and securely. We may need to retain some records to maintain compliance with other applicable legislation – for example finance, taxation, fraud and money laundering law requires certain records to be retained for an extended duration, in some cases for up to seven years.

I are unable to send or receive encrypted emails so you should be aware that any emails I send or receive may not be protected in transit. I will also monitor any emails sent to me, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send me is within the bounds of the law.

 

4 - I keep an attendance register which records appointments for patients attending my clinic to keep a record of when you were treated for tax purposes and to secure potential evidence in the event of a criminal prosecution, civil litigation, insurance claim or complaint to my regulatory body, the British Acupuncture Council.

 

5 - I may use your date of birth to help identify patients with the same name to avoid mistakes being made as to safe and appropriate treatment, for identification purposes if referring a patient to another health practitioner, and for identification purposes if writing to a registered medical practitioner so that they correctly identify the patient.

 

6 - I use your presenting complaint and symptoms reported by you for the purposes of making a full traditional diagnosis, formulating treatment strategy and treatment planning.

 

7 - I use any relevant medical and family history you have told me for making a full traditional diagnosis, formulating treatment strategy and treatment planning.

14 - In the event of an adverse incident occurring to any of my patients I report the matter to the British Acupuncture Council and my insurance company to enable the insurance company to deal with any potential claims and to help the British Acupuncture Council to develop its safe practice guidelines, as well as providing research data and information for the BAcC’s insurers and other interested parties. 

 

15 - Where relevant I maintain records of the patient’s consent to treatment, or the consent of their next-of-kin in order to be able to prove that the patient (and/or parent/guardian/next of kin) has given informed consent to treatment to secure evidence in the event of a civil claim, criminal prosecution, insurance claim or complaint.

I will only use the personal information I collect to process the complaint and to check on the level of service I provide. I usually have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, I will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis. I may need to provide personal information collected and processed in relation to complaints to the British Acupuncture Council or my insurance company.

 

I will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with my retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for two years from closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the ‘need to know’ principle.

 

Similarly, where enquiries are submitted to me I will only use the information supplied to me to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues and to check on the level of service I provide.
