My fiancee fell in the home and suffered injuries. Initially the ex-wife went to the Sheriff's department and made accusations that I tried to kill him and pushed him down the stairs. After 8 weeks of investigation they have found all accusations to be false and just her being controlling, manipulative, and power hungry. They knew from the first week of interviewing me and others it wasn't substantiated but had to complete the investigation. The Rehab Hospital states as POA she has the right to restrict all visitors. The medical hospital he was in first wouldn't restrict me from visiting during the investigation, because there was no police, legal paperwork to substantiate her accusations. I could only visit when she wasn't around to cause trouble and the few times she did come when I was there she started causing a drama scene and I just left, knowing it didn't do my fiancee any good with all the negative energy and drama. He has been disoriented due to a brain bleed and therefore deemed incompetent. He is completely oriented to person. He was extremely happy to see me last week, but I was asked to leave within minutes of arrival. They wouldn't even let me tell him goodbye.
