When people are admitted to the emergency room or are admitted to the hospital and are mentally incapacitated, unable to give informed consent, or mentally ill, and no family support, they may need to be placed in appropriate long-term care or have a curator appointed to make decisions on their behalf. If this is not a voluntary procedure, it may become necessary to undertake the commitment proceedings process detailed under Louisiana mental health law or perhaps file an interdiction proceeding.
As such, a skilled legal team is of paramount importance.
