    The Nursing Home can limit its employees if it chooses to. It is not illegal for a Nursing Home employee to be Facebook friends with a Nursing Home resident. But it is also not illegal for a Nursing Home to tell its staff that they cannot be Facebook friends with the residents. Blake A. Dickson BlakeDickson@TheDicksonFirm.com

    Where did this happen? Were you in a restaurant? If an employee of the restaurant knocked your father down and broke his hip while in the course and scope of his employment the restaurant would likely be liable for your father's injuries. Servers have a duty to look before opening a swinging door which is why they usually have windows in them so you can see who is on the other side.

    If your mother is competent she can simply revoke the Power of Attirney and execute another one. A simple document that says, "I revoke the Power of Attorney that I gave to ______________." should suffice. If your mother is not competent then you will likely have to establish a guradianship for her.
