Against Medical Advice Form

Leaving the Hospital Against Medical Advice

Any citizen has the right to refuse medical intervention and leave the ED or hospital Against Medical Advice (AMA).

But there are a number of exceptions:

The need for immediate action to stabilize the state of the patient in cases of emergency and the simultaneous inability of the sufferer to express his or her own will.
Conducting a forensic examination as part of the investigation of a case of a viulation of the law.
The presence of a strong mental illness or disease that poses a risk to others.
A person commits a serious illegal act.

In such circumstances, the individual is subject to compulsory treatment or emergency care.

In all other situations, the individual has the right to refuse examination and healthcare help and leave an AMA sample.

I like the program It is not too complicated.
I like the program It is not too complicated. The monthly fee is a bit too high I am not certain that I will be able to keep it past the free trial period. $20 per month is way off the mark; unless you have lots of cash flow. Just seems like $6-$8 per month would be more in line with the value of the product.
