Note: North Carolina state law (Statute 90-21.5) prohibits anyone other than a legal guardian from bringing a minor child (under the age of 18) to a routine medical appointment.

Anyone other than the biological parent that brings a minor child for a routine medical appointment must have a Medical Power of Attorney, paperwork showing custody or similar legal documentation, except where exempt by law.
