I work in a LTC institution, we have an incapacitated resident who assigned DPOA- Healthcare to a friend (prior to incapacitation and admission to this facility). Upon admission the DPOA-Healthcare requested SSA assign the facility as representative payee. In many documents we have on file, the DPOA- Healthcare has made some decisions related to financial. There has become an issue in which the facility is questioning some requested expenditures being made by the DPOA-Healthcare for the resident, and the facility is not wanting to reimburse the DPOA-Healthcare because there is not a DPOA specific to financial on file. The DPOA-Healthcare is now threatening to take the facility to court over the matter. Should this representative/DPOA-Healthcare be allowed to make expenditures (on behalf of the resident) and expect reimbursement?
