    A patient has been given 10 minutes alone to read the informed consent document. You enter the room to discuss the risks of the study, but the patient states she has read everything. She is a middle-aged woman who seems like she genuinely understands everything. She is becoming openly agitated as you try to continue, stating she wants to participate, but is running late to pick up her son from school and doesn’t need to hear the risks again, she understands, and doesn’t know why you don’t believe her. What can you do?

Knowing that she must have made a mistake, you correct her answer for her and put the survey in her file, because you want the study to have accurate information. Is this scenario ethically sound? Why or why not?
