A court must appoint a guardian ad litem for a criminal defendant that is incompetent due their physical or mental condition and lack a representative if the defendant’s health care information is deemed relevant to the proceeding. The guardian must assess whether it is in the defendant’s best interests to authorize disclosure of their health information.
