For caregivers it is most likely referring to the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards that protect people from certain practices in nursing homes. I don't know how this would apply to a son visiting unless there was no valid reason to keep him away. If the son was creating a disturbance or the patient or guardian said he couldn't visit, then it wouldn't be a violation of the patient's rights. If the home was locking residents in and others out without reason, then it would be.

If you mean DoLS in the UK:
The DOL Safeguards should not be used if the main reason is to restrict contact with individuals who may cause the person harm. If it is believed to be in a person’s best interests to limit contact an application should be made to the Court of Protection (see DH, 2010).
