Abstract Patients have a right to receive the best treatment possible in medical settings around the world. Sometimes a patient can refuse that treatment and as nurses we have to stand by and let that happen. Despite the fact that informed consent is not always directly obtained by a nurse, we still have a duty to assist the physician and patient in order to make the process as fluid and smooth as possible. One of the best interventions we can implement is guide a patient by educating them so that they understand the procedure and the risks involved with it; by doing so, we preserve patient autonomy.
