Mom was hurt in a fall, a broken femur and left hip. At the hospital she had to have emergency surgery for a pace maker before they could help her other injuries. The hospital said she wasn't able to make medical decisions, so my youngest sibling of 7 children was given POA and the hospital had mom sign. If mom isn't able to make medical decisions, how could she make a life altering and legal decision like POA?
Is the POA legal if it was signed in a hospital under medication and dementia?
