Medical permissions for care givers
My mother watches our 1 year old son 2 days a week and sometimes one night. He recently bonked his head at home which necessitated a visit to the emergency room. My mom wants us to write up something saying that she can make medical decisions in our absence. Has anyone done something similar? What do we write, does it need to be notarized? We are thinking more of stitches and things like that. I am hesitant to grant her power of attorney, just seems too complicated. If she shows up at the emergency room stating she is the grandmother, will they treat him? I would think if the kid needs treatment they will give it to him. We will definitely provide her with his insurance card. Luckily she has the same last name.
