Liability to soldiers toward mental patients where CO of hospital is responsible?
In armed forces soldiers are forced to stay along with psychiatric patients on the name of security of patients..such soldiers detailed are not trained to handle mental patients but forced to do so..is there any liability to soldiers toward mental patients where CO of hospital is responsible?

The soldier is on the guard duty of the mental patient and is in no way a part of the treatment of the patient, so how do you challenge it, unless there is a written order detailling the nature of your duty in respect of the mental patient.
