Expert:  John Legal replied 5 years ago.
She has rights under the Federal Patient Bill of Rights to speak to anyone she chooses. He cannot block you so long as she can express that she wants to speak with you.

Unfortunately, the only other way to get control is to file for guardianship in her county. The court can appoint a guardian to make decisions for her. This could be you or your stepfather.
