The best you can do is ask Dad to put u on any HIPPA paperwork. The wife cannot give permission for son to be on Dads HIPPA papers.
This is one of those things that should be worked out well in advance. You don’t mention dementia on the profile. If FIL is still able you could ask him to sign a release and/or make his son his POA. I hope he is better soon.
