Jack Herer's Wife Can't See Him Hospital
Jack Herer Update: Wife Unable To Get Condition Updates, Visit Him
This is Jack's wife, Jeannie. Jack had a heart attack in Portland,
Oregon on September 12. I was in California waiting for him to come
home. I flew to Portland, went to the hospital and was told that a woman
named Joy Graves had come to the hospital with a Medical Power of
Attorney that Jack had allegedly signed, naming her and Chuck Jacobs as
the people in charge of Jack's medical care. It wasn't complete and
looks like someone forged his signature. The hospital's legal team
determined it was no good.
Jack is now in a skilled nursing facililty in Eugene. Joy Graves has
taken the paper to them and they have accepted it until their legal team
decides what to do. In the meantime, I am not allowed to see Jack or
even get news about his condition over the phone. Jack has already been
neglected in the nursing home. He fell out of bed there and hit his head
shortly after being admitted. He had lumps on his head from it and
bruises on his upper eyelids.
I've had to hire an attorney to deal with this. I don't have much money
but I'll do what I can. I love Jack very much and can't believe this is
happening to him now, when he needs me the most.
