The system is far from perfect, whether we're talking about a patient with dementia or mental illness. How to protect their rights when they are a danger to themselves or others is a difficult balancing act. I suspect the laws in the U.S. are similarly "poorly drafted, overly complex and bureaucratic" and we also should start again.
