1977 Legislation: Proposed Guardianship Law

Record #:
North Carolina law provides for the appointment of a guardian who can give substitute consent for incompetent patients. There are many problems with the present statute, but the most obvious is that the present proceedings are unconstitutional. An alternative guardianship statute is proposed to provide for a limited guardianship for handicapped adults.
