    Kenalog/Steroid Injection

    Please read this form entirely. It contains information to assist you in making a decision to have a specific therapy. Please tick each point, you must comply and understand the following points to allow you to proceed with the test.

    There are risks and complications that may result from this therapy, they are rare, but do exist and you must be aware of them.

    Steroids are the name used to describe a group of drugs correctly known as corticosteroids. Steroids are used to treat inflammation. Steroids can be injected directly into tissue such as a bursa or joint, or intramuscular for a systemic effect.

    Possible side effects include allergic reaction, immediate pain at the injection site, transient increase in pain at the injection site for several days, infection, bleeding, bruising, localized thinning or depigmentation of the skin, thinning of subcutaneous fat resulting in dimpling, and weakening of tendons. Steroids may cause a transient increase in blood sugar.
    Rare complications include avascular necrosis (bone death), steroid arthropathy / damage to the joint, damage to surrounding nerves, and systemic reactions such as palpitations, hot flushes, adrenal suppression, irregular menstrual bleeding, or mood changes including anxiety, insomnia or psychosis.
    The above listed risks may occur, but there may be unforeseen risks and risks that are not included on this list. Some of these risks, if they occur, may necessitate hospitalization and/or extended outpatient therapy to permit adequate treatment.
    I understand that medicine is not an exact science and that no guarantees are offered regarding my expected results. I am aware that it is possible that this treatment will not work for me.
    I confirm that I am aware of all of the side effects and possible risks that comes with receiving a steroid injection especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
    I have read the foregoing information, understand it and I give my full informed consent to have Steroid injection performed.
