Find Care & Housing
There isn't a lot of point in rehashing something that has already been done, it sounds like the meeting has taken place and papers were signed. You need to concentrate on your roll going forward. Make sure the facility has your healthcare POA on file and knows that you are the main contact for any health related issues. Don't be confrontational, I have heard a saying "be curious, not furious". You need to make these people your best friends in order to assure her future care.

Financial POA deals exclusively with finances, healthcare POA with medical decisions. Neither one can over ride the decisions of a competent individual, they have only been granted the power to act on behalf of someone who can not act for themselves.
Even if someone is mentally capable they have the right to have family present when they meet with doctors or the nursing home, the more ears to hear what is said the better. I think that both POAs should be involved in a nursing home admission, as both financial and medical needs will probably be discussed.

No, the person who has been designated POA can't take over healthcare decisions without the elderly person designating them. Papers need to be drawn up and new signatures have to be given.
