Traduction en anglais : The legal and medical aspects of refusal to consent to a blood transfusion.
The limited understanding of a patient, such as a Jehovah's Witness, who has consented to an operation but refuses a blood transfusion for personal or religious reasons, places the physician in a moral dilemma.
According to Article 2 II of the German Constitution, the fact that the patient has withheld or expressly refused his consent, i.e., in writing, mandates that the legal right of physical integrity be upheld with final legal effect, even in the case of an emergency.
