If a child is taken from a parent's custody by cps and placed in a friend's care temporarily, what rights do the parent's still have when it comes to such things as medical attention and medications? I would like to know if it would be hard to switch care takers due to them not respecting our religious beliefs when it comes to medication. Do I have a say in his medical care? When he was in foster care, even they asked permission to give him medications, it appears that maybe the temporary guardians have more rights. Are they obligated to notify me when they take him to the Dr. or the E.R? Thank you for your time.
