10. HIV Testing Consent (only applies when ordering an HIV
The purpose of this form is to document that I or my physician have requested
that a blood test for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) be performed. The
blood test(s) are used to detect HIV antibody or DNA. HIV is the cause of
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). I understand that the test is
performed by drawing blood from the arm and processing the resulting blood
specimen by either ELISA, Western Blot or other laboratory technology.
I have been informed that the tests can produce false positive and false
negative results. For HIV, antibody testing, the ELISA screening test produces
three false "positive" (indicating the presence of anti-HIV when it is not
present) test results in every 10,000 specimens processed, regardless of
population tested. Also, I have been informed that, if positive, the ELISA test
will be repeated, and if still positive, a secondary level test (Western Blot)
will then be performed. The combination of these two tests reduces the
possibility of a false positive HIV antibody result to a very small fraction per
10,000 tests processed.
I have been informed that the ELISA screening test fails to detect anti-HIV
for a period of time immediately after infection with the virus. I have been
offered re-testing if it is suspected that this has occurred. The ELISA
screening test may fail to detect anti-HIV in rare cases.
My physician has explained the following to me in language that I understand:
the nature of the blood test, it's expected benefits, it's risks, and
The results of the HIV test will become part of my medical record. The
confidentiality of my medical record will be maintained. However, I understand
that my physician or other health care provider may ask to see the results for
medical reasons. I understand that positive test results must be reported to
the appropriate State Health Division. Confirmed HIV antibody test results will
be made available beyond that only in summary or statistical form in such a way
as to preserve my confidentiality.
I have read the previous information and I understand it. By checking the
box on the order form, I acknowledge that I have been given all of the
information that I have requested concerning the blood test(s) and the release
I acknowledge that I have given my consent for the performance of an HIV
blood test, and the release of the results as described above.
