My husband and I have Med POA and Financial POA. We have a home visiting doctor group that sees my MIL (95 has dementia lives at home with caregiver help) about once a month. Their communication with us is really terrible. Every time they go to her home for a visit, we make arrangements to be there (we live 30 minutes away) and they either come early and leave before we get there, or knock on the door and leave because she doesn't answer. Last week my husband got a call from a guy trying to deliver an oxygen test to her home. We were not told about the test we didn't know what it was, etc. The aid that comes twice a day every day put it on her and she went to bed, took it off after 2 hours (supposed to be on overnight). We are going to call the physician office Monday. My question is since we're Med POA and she has dementia, what is their obligation to talk to us about any tests ordered or having us be there when they visit? Also is it typical for them to work this way? When we told the doctor she has to have hearing aides to hear, he said that she had no problem understanding what he was saying. He seemed surprised when we told him she needed hearing aids. I want to get rid of this doctor group, but I also was wondering how common this behavior is. We're going to tell them no tests unless they ask us first. And no appointments without us being there. At least until we find another doctor group to take over her care. Has anyone ever experienced this? By the way, her oxygen saturation is not and never has been a problem. I think they are padding their medicare billing. Which really burns me up.
