Legal guardian rights- is it legal for the nursing home to discuss the financial arrangements with family members? A situation has come up regarding payment during a pending Medicaid case that I am handling. My family member has contacted the administrator who discussed information regarding a balance owing. My sister is now up in arms because she does not know the facts and is accusing me of spending my mom's money instead of paying the nursing home, which is not the case. Is it legal for this person to discuss these matters with my sibling, while the situation is in the resolution stage?
