My friend is currently in hospital over in Italy and can't make decisions for herself. Her little boy is only 3 and her parents have stepped in as Next of Kin. The problem is that I and the rest of her friends including sister unanimously agree that they are not acting in her best interests and going against what she would have wanted if she were in a position to make the decisions herself. I wanted to know what this means legally? We think at some point we may have to intervene and wanted to know if there were grounds for us to do that and how we'd go about it. I was trying to think of anywhere where NoK is stated and the only place I can think of in my friend's case is inside her passport. We're busy finding out who that person is now.
