Consents

Hello all,

I am wondering who in your facilities handles consent. As the HIM Manager, I handle authorizations for release of information, etc., but I haven't been involved with surgical consent. So my question is who handles revising surgical consents, general consents, consents for blood administration, etc. Is that you? Or is it the department? Are you both involved?

Thanks for any help.
