Re: Emergency forms

Weight may also be needed if they need to give simple things like painkillers (if you also checked that box).

In a non-emergency where the patient is conscious (or the parent of a child is), they would want you to sign an authorisation for the treatment which includes liability for the costs in the case of insurance not covering it.

Rather than the carer having to sign something promising to pay any medical bills, which they would naturally be reluctant to do, they can show the form which confirms the parent has provided an insurance number and given them authority for decision making.
