Re: 13 Year Old Suspended From School For Hugging
False statement. The Emergency Room will NOT wait for parents if there is a ligfe-threatening injury. Stabilizing the patient and giving treatment will occur under the doctrine of implied consent. That treatment will occur even if the parents don't want it if it is necessary to save the child's life.
"Parents should not be held in any way financially responsible for treatment they did not authorize."
If it is necessary to treat the child in opposition to the parent's wishes, the state will step in.
