If you have been proven mentally incompetent who would be uour legal guardian to say whether you can recieve narcotics for pain
If the court has assigned a legal guardian over a person who has been judged mentally incompetent, then the appointed legal guardian has the right to make health care decisions like this for the person. However, if the legal guardian is not available, a doctor can legally determine that a mentally incompetent person is in need of narcotics and can administer those.
