Consent for Treatment
Oral consent is sufficient for removal of ear wax by Clear Ears nurses using micro suction and curette technology.
By attending consultation with our nurse, your consent for examination and treatment is implied. Consent for treatment of minors, the intellectually disabled or others not considered legally competent to make decisions on their own behalf, will be obtained from a parent, guardian or attorney (as appropriate) who must be in attendance at time of consultation or provide written consent if unable to attend.
Complications of ear wax removal with micro suction and curettage are uncommon. Possible complications, side-effects and material risks inherent in the procedure include:
- Incomplete removal of ear wax, requiring return visit (for severely impacted wax)
- Trauma including canal trauma, perforation of the ear drum and minor bleeding
- Increased tinnitus
- Hearing Loss
- Vertigo and Nausea
Our Registered Nurses have completed the Course in Aural Care training for Ear Wax Removal using micro suction and curettage. The procedure is performed under direct visualisation using microscopic vision via specialised glasses called loupes.
To ensure the risk of complication is minimised, it is essential that accurate past medical history is supplied to our nurses. In addition, it is important that the patient remains relatively still during the procedure as sudden movement may significantly increase the risk of Ear Drum Perforation, Permanent Hearing Loss and/ or Bleeding.
Clear Ears uses eWay online payment systems. This is both to protect you as eWay are renowned for secure and easy online payment and for the security of our Nurses who will not hold cash at the clinic. Whilst we do require payment at time of booking, should you cancel your booking and not wish to rebook the appointment a reversal of your payment will be made within 5 working days. (See cancellation policy below)
All receipts or invoices from Clear Ears are electronic, and emailed to the email address you have supplied to us. If you would like to receive a hard copy of any receipt, this can be arranged on request and posted to your mailing address.
We understand that sometimes you need to change your schedule and we ask that you:
- Give us 24 hours notice so we can let someone else into your time slot
- If less than 24 hours notice is given a 50% fee may be charged
- If you do not attend or give notice of cancellation of your appointment we hold the right to charge you the full amount of the service booked
