    If your mother is competent she can simply revoke the Power of Attirney and execute another one.

  • Is it legal for employers to force their health care workers to not be friends with patients on facebook?

    My father lives in an assisted care facility and, just recently, the entire staff was told that they could no longer have residents as friends on facebook.

    Blake’s Answer

    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.

    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.
