ABSTRACT
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is urging physicians to fully disclose all possible risks and alternatives to surgery, even if the patient does not want to hear the details. Some physicians resist the idea. • An Oregon hospital was sanctioned for failing to comply. • The CMS guideline contradicts an Oregon statute. • Hospitals should comply unless CMS changes its position.
