     I, the above named patient, understand that I am opting for an elective treatment/procedure at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine that is non-urgent and is not medically necessary.

     I also understand that the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. I further understand that COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread by person-to-person contact; and, as a result, federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing. I recognize that all the staff at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine are closely monitoring this situation and have put in place reasonable preventative measures aimed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, given the nature of the virus, I understand there is an inherent risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 by virtue of proceeding with this elective treatment/procedure. I hereby acknowledge and assume the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 through this elective treatment/procedure, and I give my express permission for VIDA Aesthetic Medicine Physicians, Nurses, and all staff to proceed.

     I understand that, even if I have been tested for COVID and received a negative test result, the tests in some cases may fail to detect the virus or I may have contracted COVID after the test. I understand that, if I have a COVID-19 infection, and even if I do not have any symptoms, proceeding with this elective treatment/ procedure can lead to a higher chance of complication and death.
 
I understand that possible exposure to COVID-19 before/during/after my treatment/procedure may result in the following: a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, extended quarantine/self-isolation, additional tests, hospitalization that may require medical therapy, Intensive Care treatment, possible need for intubation/ventilator support, short-term or long-term intubation, other potential complications, and the risk of death. In addition, after my elective treatment/procedure, I may need additional care that may require me to go to an emergency room or a hospital for treatment and I may incure financial costs.

     I understand that COVID-19 may cause additional risks, some or many of which may not currently be known at this time, in addition to the risks described herein, as well as those risks for the treatment/procedure/surgery itself.

     I have been given the option to defer my treatment/procedure to a later date. However, I understand all the potential risks, including but not limited to the potential short-term and long-term complications (medical and financial) related to COVID-19, and I would like to proceed with my desired treatment/procedure.

I UNDERSTAND THE EXPLANATION AND HAVE NO MORE QUESTIONS AND CONSENT TO THE PROCEDURE.

The parties agree that the electronic signatures appearing on this agreement are the same as handwritten signatures for the purposes of validity, enforceability and admissibility.
