Mom has been refusing meds off n on for awhile now. Nursing home called to inform, that she refused over 6 days during the holidays. My father could not get her to take them either. At recent family meeting w/NH, we are informed that she has refused blood sugar tests since Dec. 9, 2013.Disappointed that we were not informed of this sooner. She is between M.D. 's currently, but have one onboard now, but won't see her until rounds early February. We are told NH cannot force any meds/procedures against her will. That we need a court order to do so w/guardianship. Isn't POA, MPOA the same as guardianship? I know she can be coerced into taking meds etc.. but I live an hour away. No one wants to move her to another NH, as Dad is closest now, but less than helpful. Wrote the new M.D, a letter to inform of situation. Current temp M.D. and Psyc. doc. says wait n see, but not sure if they are of aware of the history here. She takes pills for diabetes, and is not a severe case, but non the less, needs her meds. & blood tests. Psyc has her on anti-depressants for moodiness. Concerned with effects for on/off this medication as well. What to do?
