If a section of the Kentucky Revised Statutes uses the phrase “individual, private
setting” to describe the conditions under which informed consent must be given to
a medical procedure, then the informed consent offered in accordance with that section
shall be considered valid only if a physician or a licensed nurse, physician assistant,
or social worker to whom the responsibility has been delegated by the physician has
a face-to-face meeting with the patient and both parties are physically located in
the same room or are participating in real-time visual telehealth services initiated
by the physician or by the patient.
