I have complained about my Mother's care and have a validated complaint filed with the NYS Department of Health. My brother, after receiving communication by the nursing home (which I was not informed of) has told the nursing home not to let me see my Mother until I have agreed to limit my time with her. The nursing home has required me to write a signed document agreeing to limit my time with my mother. My brother, who has health proxy has agreed with them that I need to provide this letter before they allow me to see my Mother. My Dad, who is very angry about this - has told my brother and the nursing home that this is not his wishes.

Is Mom able to make her wishes known? If so, your brother has no say. Does Dad have medical proxy too? If so, as her husband I would think his overrides brothers.

I would the NYS Dept of Health and tell them about this. To me this is a retaliation because of the complaint and may not be legal.
