If patient signed consent for the procedure wouldn't anything that is necessary to complete that procedure be covered by that signature? If surgeon is in middle of procedure and realizes the implant is needed....he's not going to close patient up, wait till patient wakes up to ask permission & get sig, then give anesthesia again or even reschedule. I think if patient signed for the procedure then you are covered.
