Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If he has a guardian, that means he has been deemed not competent to handle his own affairs, so the court has appointed someone to watch over his affairs. This means that they can look through his things. All you can do is explain this was part of your normal joking, but they did not violate his rights in going through his things, since his guardian has such a right and can allow the facility to do so as well to assist in protecting the resident.
They are not forbidding you from going to see him, so there is no real legal claim you can make.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
