Medical Whistleblower Advocacy Network Report 3/26/15 regarding human rights violations of persons who are wards of the court. The medical abuse and neglect of vulnerable mentally disabled adults and children as well as the elderly. Wards of the court have had their legal rights to legally advocate for themselves removed by a Judge's court order and another person (a guardian) assigned to represent their legal rights. The ability to advocate for one's own needs is essential in order to prevent human rights abuses. The worst human rights abuses happen behind closed doors and in places where the vulnerable persons are deprives of their basic human rights including the right to legally advocate for oneself. Pharmaceutical companies deliberately target vulnerable patient populations who are least likely to sue the company if an adverse event happens with their product. The use of pharmaceutical medications off-label without full informed consent is considered a human rights violation of a person's medical integrity. The use of neuroleptic medications without informed consent is considered potentially as torture. The use of psychiatric medications for chemical restraint is very overused and contributes to decreased quality of life for patients and also decreased life expectancy.
