Hospice or Hospital? There is a big difference.
HIPAA laws do cover this; the nursing home CAN'T tell you anything but to call the person with Health Care Proxy/POA.
The POA does not have to tell you anything, but has to keep all information confidential.

Yes, with HIPAA law, only those names signed on the HIPAA form will be given information. Maybe your mother wasn't taken to a hospital. Is she well enough to visit family for the holidays?
