Can a POA add a POA for health decisions only?

I have POA over my brother for Medical and Financial and I will remain as such. He needs 24/7 care and will be moving in with my niece who has agreed to care for him. What I need is to allow her POA over the medical so she can make and receive medical information on his behalf. I do not want any delays in his care because "she's not authorized". My brother is mentally incapacitated due to a serious accident. Can I complete a new POA keeping everything the same, except to add her for the medical decisions? If not, can I complete a limited POA for her with my signature only? Need assistance. Attorney that wrote it does not know???

Only the "Principal " (your brother ) can change the POA document, including adding a Medical POA. If your brother is incapable of doing so, the only option for you is to file for Guardianship. The POA document does not allow you to add other people as POA, only the Principal can do that.
