I am being left out of the loop about the nursing home doctor visits to my mom's room, their findings, and why they are recommending certain medication changes. I am her medical POA. I asked one of the nurses if it wasn't the law that I be contacted on medical visits by the doctor, their findings, and medication changes. The nurse told me they do not have to contact me because my mom is able to make her own decisions. It is not only my opinion that my mom cannot make her own medical decisions, but she does have a cognitive diagnosis, and several speech language therapists have given me information concerning her cognitive and communication abilities since her stroke.
