Written Consent Required for Pelvic Exams in Florida
By FCA General Counsel Kim Driggers   
Thursday, 09 September 2021
During the 2020 Florida legislative session, a bill was introduced to require written consent before the performance of a pelvic examination.  Numerous physicians and physician groups immediately voiced their concerns about the ambiguities within the bill as to the definition of “pelvic examination” and requested clarification from the Florida legislature, the FCA being one of them.  As of July 1, 2021, Senate Bill 716, Consent for Pelvic Examinations, clarified the intent of the prior Senate Bill 698, and better defined the terms of the requirements for written and verbal consent prior to performing a pelvic examination.

By FCA Counsel Kim Driggers   
Tuesday, 31 August 2021
Prior to the 2021 Legislative Session, Florida law did not make it a crime to provide medical treatment to a minor child without parental consent.  House Bill 241, effective July 1, 2021, changed the law and now makes it a misdemeanor of the first degree for physicians and other health care providers to provide medical services to a minor without first obtaining written parental consent.
