I used to argue with people like that, now I just say "move" loudly and in a commanding voice to make people listen to me. Works most of the times on patients and their relatives.
It doesn't work where I work. Patients and visitors would scream at us because "you don't know the proper medical treatment" and/or "there must be an alternative way to treat this pain without medication!" If we do not listen to their advice, complaints are filed against us because clearly said patients and visitors are medical professionals and not healthcare employees.
I know she's your mom, but I would tell HER to shut up and remind her that YOU have a medical license while she, and Google, do not. If that doesn't phase her, remind her that if anything bad were to happen to your nephew, that it might be YOUR license on the line for not stepping in and allowing her to do bad medicine. (I notice you're in the Philippines and I know family is critically important, but well, I'm assuming your medical license is the reason you're getting paid, too)
I hope you pushed her away and saved your nephew from a wrong treatment. Such an emergency isn't a situation where you can talk for a long time while another person is making the situation worse. You were the medical authority in this situation so you should have acted like an authority no matter whether this other person was your mom or not
Come on man, we all know that soccer moms who spend 10 minutes on the University of Google and only paying $99/month for access to UG have more knowledge on medical treatments than people who paid about $80,000/year for about 4-6 years to study medicine to become licensed professionals. In all seriousness, your mother is a moron and I hope your cousin isn't permanently harmed from her stupidity.
