My daughter needs to get into a rehab center. She is unable to contact them through jail. Because they will not accept phone calls from jail even though it's no cost to them. They will not discuss any medical matters about my daughter with me and we've tried a 3-way call and they will not talk to her that way either. I just need answers how to get power of attorney over my daughter to get her the medical help that she needs and she wants. They will not release her from jail until she has an inpatient facility bed waiting for her. And that cannot be done without setting it up
A notary, (It will be easier if it is an attorney that is also a notary) needs to visit her in jail and take a durable power of attorney (preferably with full rights and HIPPA waivers, etc) with them and have her sign it, then the attorney can notarize her signature. Then you have a valid power of attorney.
