For almost three centuries, the theory surrounding informed consent has evolved and its roots date back to 1767. 15 In & 15 a plaintiff alleged negligence and a lack of informed consent for a surgical procedure. Most of such early cases, such as the Slater matter, were more about negligence than issues of informed consent, but the idea was established early in English common law (which is the basis for modern American jurisprudence) that a patient had certain rights that could not be violated by a physician. In America, this evolution continued and became more specific in the case of 16 wherein a surgeon was given consent to operate on the patient’s right ear. Finding the left ear in greater need of attention, the surgeon instead operated on the left ear, apparently with skill and success, but notably without permission. It was considered an assault and battery, and for many years, cases involving similar circumstances were treated as batteries, or “unauthorized touchings.” 17
