HIPPA Rights/POA

My sister and brother have POA over my mother. Neither one is helping her with her medical issues (doctor appt, diabetes, hospital, medication, etc). I feel as if they are not good POAs for her health. What rights do I have. I'm being told because of the HIPPA law, I have no rights and hospitals can't do anything since she does not understand the seriousness of her illness. I also live in a different state than they do.

RE: HIIPA Rights POA

Hello Billie Jo-

I don't know how old your post is (today is 12/16/13) but I have exactly the same problem.

My mother is becoming very incapacitated, and my sister lives next door. They live several days away from me. I am a nurse.

I have just found out that mom's health care providers were "instructed" not to talk to me because my sister said she has POA (I did not know that mother had a HIIPA POA).

The solution would be to talk to mother - but she lives in under my sister's control and would not want to jeopardize or provoke her (As you can see, the family is dysfunctional). Do you have any advice?

I thank you for your attention. ~ Rouge
