Ditto what the others have said.

I have to bring my step-kids to the doc sometimes when my husband is at work. I work from home so it's easier to take an hour off. I know it would be smarter to get a notarized power of attorney letter from DH, but we haven't done this yet. My pediatrician knows my role and I would never expect the bio-mom to press the issue since she rarely takes them to the doc and probably appreciates that we/ I pick up the slack. I would call ahead though. They could fax you the signature form in advance or might even have a template where DH allows you to make medical decisions for his kids.
