I visited this facility
After traveling nearly 300 miles to visit a relative in this facility we were told she wasn't there. When we discovered she was, in fact, there we were told they could not let us know she was there "Because of HIPAA". I knew that to be untrue. There is nothing in HIPAA requiring facilities to withhold whether or not your loved on is in the facility. There is, certainly,no requirement that they lie to you about whether or not your relative is there (https://www.aclu.org/technology-and-liberty/faq-access-patient-information-friends-and-family). We began to suspect the POA may have directed them to lie to potential visitors and they were simply following POA wishes. We have since been informed the POA did not instruct them to deny access. We did, eventually, get to see our relative. Reportedly, the POA told them to let us see her immediately upon learning that we were in town to visit her. One would think they would have contacted the POA before telling out of town relatives their loved one wasn't at the facility. I, personally, would not want a loved one to be anywhere they would be denied visitation without due process. However, if you want to put someone in a facility where the staff do not understand HIPAA and will deny family from seeing their dying relatives, it sounds like this is the place for you.
