§ 25607.7. Prescription Drug Exposure and Emergency Medical or Dental Care Exposure Warnings.
(a) For prescription drugs, the labeling approved or otherwise provided under federal law and the prescriber's accepted practice of obtaining a patient's informed consent comply with this subarticle.
(b) For exposures resulting from emergency or urgent medical or dental care as defined in Article 1, Section 25102(g), no warning is required when any of the following circumstances exists:
(1) The patient is unconscious; or
(2) The procedure must be undertaken because the licensed medical personnel, licensed dental personnel, or certified emergency medical personnel responsible for administering the care, as these terms are defined in Sections 25102(q), 25102(d), and 25102(b), respectively, reasonably believes that the procedure should be undertaken immediately; and therefore, there is insufficient time to fully inform the patient; or
(3) The procedure must be performed on a person legally incapable of giving consent, and the licensed medical personnel, licensed dental personnel, or certified emergency medical personnel responsible for administering the care reasonably believes the procedure should be undertaken immediately; and therefore, there is insufficient time to obtain the informed consent of a person authorized to give such consent for the patient.
