What to do about dad? My father has totally lost it!
how do you get the medical POA?
My mom is currently at rehab with plans to go home, and my father has totally lost it! Something glen beck/bill oreilly-ish...he thinks that any money medicare pays is contributing to the delinqueny of the country...
He is bawlking at the O2 (which she needs) convinces her she doesn't need high blood pressure meds (she's lost her kidneys to uncontrolled HBP) and that she doesn't need a O2 monitor (we've almost lost her to depressed breathing....twice. This last time? she spent time on the respirator)
We need to know the fastest way to take control of her medical decisions. He won't see a civi doc, he goes to the VA, and there is NO WAY to contact them to try and get a mental eval done on dad.
We need to be in charge of the decisions regarding her health care, she will come home to live with her daughters.
