As a seperated spouse do i have the legal right to know my wifes' condition if she is hospitalized?

Asked over 5 years ago - Villa Park, IL

i have been seperated for 5 months and my wife had a stroke so the divorce cant procede.My mother in law has told the hospital treating my wife not to give me any informaton on her condition. i want to know what my rights as her husband are because I also would like to file a disability claim for her. We have a daughter who is 5yrs old and the benifits would be used for her care.
