My father is 91 years old. A very responsible citizen who has not had any driving
citations or accidents in well over 20 years. He travels in about a 10 block radius from his home, which is a very small town and speed limit is 25 miles per hour. He never ventures on the highway our veers out of his routine. He is of sound mind, and is not demented in any way. He lives on his own, takes care of all of his finances and does very well. He has a good support system with family, neighbors and friends checking on him daily.
Recently, he was admitted into the hospital for some heart issues. He rebounded well, responded to medications and followed instructions. While in the hospital, an in law, my sister's husband, brought up to a Dr. that he had concerns about someone my father's age driving. The Doctor had a discussion with this person, who is not a direct family member regarding this issue. In turn, the Dr. took away my Father's driving privileges and sent forms into the DMV
. There was no discussion with me, his power of attorney
, my father or my sister.
What help can I get from an attorney or otherwise to get my father's driver's license re-instated? Did the Dr. violate HIPPA
