My 97 yr old friend, AL, hasnt been out of the nursing home since she entered, 12 mo ago. In Feb, C. came up to take her out. POA was called by the nurse, and C was told she could not take AL to her house. So C didnt take her out. 5 months go by, and AL really wants to go out to her home. Nurse had no problem with me signing AL out. We went to her home,which is padlocked, unbeknown to AL, but neighbor had the key. Took AL to the bank. She had some business to take care of. POA found out I took AL out. For revenge, the POA shut off AL's telephone, and now has told the nursing home social worker that if someone wants to take AL out for the day, POA wants to be called. And there are only 3 people who would take AL out, and POA has a power trip going, so we 3 know we will never be able to take AL out if POA has to be called. Is this legal in the state of North Carolina?
