Abstract

This article reviews medical-legal issues with regard to minors as they apply to the practice of emergency medicine. The topics of consent to treatment, refusal of care, child abuse, and medical malpractice are addressed. A working knowledge of these areas helps the emergency physician to avoid confusion, avoid delays in management, and maintain the safety of children.
