My grandmother gave me medical power of attorney and i was told that if my mother comes to the hospital that power of attorney is null and void. Is this true
Country relating to Question: United States
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
That is not true
it remains in force and effect
it gets voided in 2 ways:
she revokes it
or she passes away which terminates the power
otherwise it remains valid
Thank you, i thought that this was the case but a family friend got grandma all upset becuase she does not want mom having the power to make her decisions
