The Public Curator does not have custody of the protected person of full age to whom he is appointed tutor or curator unless, where no other person can assume it, the court entrusts it to him. He is nevertheless, in all cases, responsible for protection of the person of full age.
The person to whom custody is entrusted, however, has the power of a tutor or curator to give consent to the care required by the state of health of the person of full age, except the care which the Public Curator elects to provide.
