hi friends ,

In a patient with psychotic episode due to anoxia who is on end stage cardiac failure how long can they be treated on a medical ward under common law?

That's a dodgy case isn't it??

But the answer all boils down to one thing - capacity and does his mental illness affect his capacity to refuse treatment.

mental capacity act 2007..

there is no answer to the how long question. can they or can they not be treated legally is the question.
