Finding and Making Your Own Free Medical Consent Forms
Regardless of what you need the form for, the internet and word processors make finding or making your own medical consent form quick and easy. Medical consent forms may be used to grant a custodian or a babysitter permission to seek medical attention for your kids in case of an emergency but there are probably other uses for these as well.
You can find these forms by using any major search engine like Google or Yahoo or finding a website that offers free legal documents. Simply download the form and print it out. It is that simple.
You can always make your own Medical Consent Form using a word processing application such as Microsoft Word or WordPad. Simply fill in the information necessary, print it out, sign the bottom and you are all set! Below is an example of a standard Medical Consent Form though you can change and tailor it as you see fit.
In case of an emergency, (enter name of temporary custodian) has my consent to approve medical care for my child (enter child's (children's) name).
Family Physician: (enter physician's name)

Address: (enter you mailing address)
Date: (enter the date)
Signature: (print out and sign on the line)
There you go. You are all set and can rest assured that your child will get the necessary medical attention if need be in your absence.
P.S. You can also request a medical consent form from your local hospital or family physician.
