After two weeks, Pt. refused to eat and take her meds. On January 28, 2015, Pt. was scheduled
for dialysis, and was admitted again because pt. had general weakness of the LE and was unable
to close her left eye. She stayed in a private room and CT scan was performed to assess for stroke.
She was transferred to the ICU the next day d/t high WBC. CSF fluid was collected via Lumbar Tap
to r/o sepsis, was given an NGT for intake of food and meds., and was aided by respirator for
breathing. She stayed in the ICU for 4 days and was moved to a private room with an ICU set-up
because she is not properly attended to, she also developed ulcerations on her gluteal region d/t
unobserved turning schedule. She stayed in the private room for 1 month and 1 week, and was
attended to by PDNs 24 hr/day. By the 3rd week of February, her pressure sores were debrided
and was given albumin vials as protein source for muscle recovery and wound healing. During her
stay in the hospital, her IV line was transferred to her R leg because her forearm was developing
edema. This then became a point of infection which resulted to a major wound. By March 2015,
she was discharged. She has her PDN and caregiver with her at home.
After discharge, Pt. underwent dialysis 3x a week. After 2 weeks, pt. was admitted back
to the hospital d/t absence seizures. She was admitted for 5 days and was prescribed with Dilantin
as medications. In between the months of April and June 2015, her wound on the R leg was
debrided twice, having a 2-3 week interval. At this time, pt. also developed a wound on her
forehead d/t to incessant and habitual scratching. Pt. started receiving PT once a week as
tolerated, which started on August 2015 until November 2015. Her therapy sessions were held
in between the days of her schedule for dialysis. Her PT treatment was stopped when she started
developing a cough. She went back to the hospital for check-up, and her trache was evaluated
and was recommended for replacement. On January 2016, pt. underwent surgery for trache
replacement and was confined for 3-4 days. Pt treatment was continued on March 2016 but was
stopped after 4 sessions because pt. was beginning to have a cough.
By the last week of May 2016, pt. had several low-grade fevers, lost appetite, and general
weakness. Pt. was admitted again for 3 weeks d/t pneumonia and sepsis. Blood C&S was
