My brother has POA! Our mother is in a nursing home. I have approached the nursing home and my brother several times on having cataract surgery for our mother.Brother keeps telling me he is not spending her money and he is waiting in medicaid to kick in. I believe she is now on medicaid! Our mother is considered blind because of these cataracts. The nursing home has told me they have to honor poa's instructions he is waiting on medicaid. What are my mothers rights and what can I do to force him to schedule this surgery?
