I hold a valid medical POA for my mother, I have asked the medical records person with a copy to the LNHA and the Diirector for the necessary form. I have also sent her two reminders. What can I do? I know I have a legal right to the information, I am concerned that they are withholding information that is critical to her welfare, what can I do? It has been 5 days and I know it is acceptable to fax such a form.

Well, if she is already deceased, the records are longer critical to her welfare. If you suspect your brother mishandled the estate and committed fraud, you should report that to the state attorney general where the crime was committed. You should also notify the IRS.

Report them to the Joint Commission, file a complaint on the website.

Time to take off the gloves. Ask to see their grievance policy procedure so you can find out who to call with complaints; that should at least get you a visit with the director. Call the ombudsman (you may be able to find that online for your state) and see how quickly they can help you; maybe even find a lawyer and just have them write a letter for starters. This is not acceptable on their part.

Does the nursing home have a copy of your medical POA? If so, they should be responding to your requests.
