Just as a follow up, I was notified by Allentown State Hospital that due to HIPAA laws they cannot release my great grandmothers medical records to me. Even tho she's been dead for 90 years and all of her children are now deceased. I cannot believe it. I can't understand who the law thinks they're protecting? If anyone has any ideas on how to get around this, or how to have myself named as her personal representative, please let me know. Thanks.
