Introduction: In order to provide quality and safety, the ministry of Health has developed accreditation standards for hospitals in Iran. According to these standards, a hospital is required to have a specific check list of all the actions and treatments that need to obtain written consent from the recipient of services, and informed consent should be taken accordingly.
Objective: Investigate the quality of recording informed consent of patients in teaching hospitals of Guilan University.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive- analytical study was conducted in teaching hospitals of Guilan University in 1393, according to 303 records available in the archives of the hospitals. Data were collected using questionnaires and the quality of recording the data in the informed consent form was investigated in accordance with the objectives of this study.
Results: Recording the type of invasive procedure at 59.6%, recording the benefits of invasive procedures transparently and understandably at 31.4%, recording the possible complications of invasive procedures transparently and understandably at 45.5%, recording the explanations for alternative methods of invasive procedures at 8.6% and recording the explanations for possible risks of non- invasive treatments at 22.1% of the time revealed a good quality.
