ABSTRACT
The author offers his legal commentary on the case study related to covert treatment of violent patients. He presents several factors in determining whether the patient has the capacity to make informed choice including understanding the information given to him, retaining the information long enough to make the decision and communicating his decision. He also mentions the possible impact of the patient's wife covertly administering medication on the trustworthiness of the medical profession.
