Mental capacity Sample Clauses

Mental capacity. People must be assumed to have capacity to make their own decisions and be given all practicable help before anyone treats them as not being able to make their own decisions. Where an adult is found to lack capacity to make a decision then any action taken, or any decision made for, or on their behalf, must be made in their best interests.. (14.44). All professionals and other staff are required to work in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (‘MCA’) and have regard to the relevant Code of Practice. The provisions of the Act are binding upon anyone seeking to make decisions for a person who may lack capacity. When safeguarding concerns arise the mental capacity of the individuals involved – victims as well as those alleged to be responsible - is central to the assessment and decision-making processes. It is essential that in any level of safeguarding enquiry the mental capacity of those involved is clarified at the outset. However it is important to ensure that safeguarding decision-making and mental capacity best interests decision-making do not become confused. In essence this is because safeguarding procedures do not convey any authority to act on behalf of a person who may lack mental capacity. Any protective measures thought to be necessary for a person who lacks mental capacity to consent to them must be subjected to a robust consideration and follow the MCA principles of acting in the person’s best interests and using the principle of ‘least restriction’. Where there are disputes about a person’s mental capacity or the best interests of an adult deemed to be at risk and these cannot be resolved locally, legal advice should be sought about whether an application to the Court of Protection is required. The MCA created the criminal offences of ill-treatment and wilful neglect in respect of people who lack the ability to make decisions. The offences can be committed by anyone responsible for that adult’s care and support e.g. paid staff; family carers, people who have the legal authority to act on that adult’s behalf i.e. persons with power of attorney or Court-appointed deputies (14.48). If there are concerns about abuse by an attorney or deputy then the Office of Public Guardian should be contacted (14.50).

However, permanence of deficits due to organic brain injury may only be established with any certainty after allowing reasonable time for recovery and adaptation, which can often take 1-2 years.
