I work at a nursing facility in Massachusetts but I'm not a doctor or a nurse. I get a little worried sometimes because once in a while the nurses will say that a patient is incapacitated and start talking to the resident's health care agent without doing anything in writing. I did a health care proxy myself and I was told that only the doctor can invoke the proxy. Is that right? Thank you.
