DEFINITION FROM CHAP-1
Only a court can determine that a patient is incompetent. All adult patients are considered competent unless specifically proven otherwise. Physicians can determine whether or
not a patient has the capacity to understand bis medical condition. The physician makes a determination of the capacity of a patient to comprehend her medical problems based on
whether there is an organic delirium due to a medical condition such as a sodium problem, hypoxia, drug intoxication, meningitis, encephalitis, or a psychiatric disorder. These
determinations are based in large part on a neurological examination testing memory, comprehension, reasoning, and judgment. Any physician can make this determination. The
physician does not have to be a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist maybe useful in rendering decision making capacity determinations in cases that are complex or equivocal. If the patient
obviously does or does not have the capacity to understand, a psychiatrist is not needed.
