My husband, we were separated. I moved back in. His family forced me out... I went to check on the records to even see if he is taking his meds... they knew in the office we were once separated and I think the secretary knows the ex, so she just picked up the phone and called him and he told her over the phone not to give me the records... that should not have happened, correct?
we WERE separated but not anymore. We are 100% married. It was not a nurse, just an employee, and she called him to get a verbal order, simpy bc she knew I was coming (which she would not show me anything). Does he not have to sign, in writing to remove my name? She said in mental health they can do it anyway they want... (unfortunately she knows the family and this is why this happened, the purpose of the release was to be able to check his progress! And that actually was when we were separated, which we are not anymore.)
