An adult daughter cannot get her father admitted to a nursing home, even though he suffers from dementia and cannot care for himself. A parent cannot get information regarding medical treatment for her 19-year old son, who is awaiting surgery after an accident on his college campus. Doctors cannot terminate life support for a comatose mother, because her children cannot agree on whether to end or extend life support.
