My brother has DPOA of health care for my Mother. Do I need his permission to access her medical records?
My brother, a physician who has DPOA of health care for my mother , tends to withhold some health information from the rest of us. For instance, after my mother, who is 92, had a laminectomy, he decided to put her in hospice because she isn't doing well but will not reveal the official diagnosis that gives her 6 months to live. I would like to gain access to the Hospice records to see what has been recorded as her specific diagnosis which is required to be eligible for hospice.
