Despite its name, an irrevocable power of attorney can be revoked in some situations. If the agent or attorney-in-fact is abusing his position by acting in a manner contrary to the best interests of the principal, a court action can be filed to revoke the power. And in some states, simply using the word "irrevocable" in the document will not necessarily make the power of attorney irrevocable. A court often looks at the relationship and transactions between the principal and agent to determine if the power was intended to be irrevocable.
