I don't think so. My guess is this is an ongoing problem with this family. The partner was removed because he was disruptive. He probably was dealing with that family.

Technically there not husbands. There domestic partners. Husbands would imply there married. There not married under the law or even under natural law for the matter. There just domestic partners. I dont agree with there life style but still, its messed up he cant see his partner.edit on 11-4-2013 by camaro68ss because: (no reason given)

Roger Gorley said he just wanted to be there for Allen, his partner of almost five years. When he arrived at the medical center on Tuesday, Allen’s brother confronted him and told him to “back off.”
Gorley said he had the power of attorney and had every right to be there. However, HCA said Gorley did not present proof of “power of attorney” during that particular visit.
“‘This is my brother — I will take care of him,’ and I said ‘No, this is my husband I have taken care of him for some time,’” Gorley said.
Gorley claims a nurse wouldn’t accept him as Allen’s husband and had him escorted out by security. He was later arrested by Kansas City, Mo., police.
HCA said Thursday it does not have a restraining order against Gorley and that he is welcome back at anytime. However, a police report shows he has been cited for trespassing and disorderly conduct.
