Notary Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | This Week is Dimming Down, Don’t be a Clown and Don’t You Frown

An example of a dire situation is when a person is admitted into ICU.  There are tracheotomies, ventilators and other harsh conditions, such as paralysis that sometimes impede a signing when a person has been admitted into this ward.  Hospital signings themselves can be tricky – maneuvering around HIPPA regulations (you cannot ask hospital staff if someone has Sound Mind), navigating the halls and room structure and sequestering family members are all a part of the job.

Notary Blog: There’s Nothing Wrong with an Explanation

Some are unclear of the difference between a notary providing information only for informational purposes and a notary telling a signer what to do or how to act.  Take this example: I sign on many documents party to oversight transactions dealing with loan applications and closing paperwork on behalf of out-of-state property.  In course-of-action, I
