My mother lives in California- I live in Indiana. Mother was diagnosed with a cancerous mass in her right lung. Mother advised me she would make me info eligible with the hospital before her surgery. Once the surgery was completed and mother was in recovery- I called the hospital, gave them my info and received a password which would identify me to the staff. My sister who lives close to mother- and who has been a proven liar and thief, went to the hospital the day after the surgery (she didn't bother herself to be there the day of) demanded that she be the ONLY one to know mothers medical info. Suddenly- my password held no value and I was referred to speak to the sister. I have advised numerous times of the reason mother made me info eligible, and have now been promised a social worker will contact me concerning this issue in the next couple of days. Meanwhile- sister is telling that mother is eaten up with cancer and has lied to us about the seriousness of her condition. What can I do to plead my case and get the truth from the doctor directly?
