Before the operation, the medical institution must explain the cause of the operation, the success rate of the operation, and the possible complications including dangers to the patients, their legal representatives, spouses, relatives, and partners. After the surgical consent form and the anesthesia consent form are signed by the patients together with their relations, the operation could begin. However, the operation could begin without consent if the situation is urgent. Even if a minor who has mental illness signs the consent form, it is effective when he/she has the identification ability to sign the consent form.
