actually, the doctor came in ordered the ngt, and then inserted it himself because he said that he didn't trust the nurses. the pt is 92 and came in after a fall two weeks ago and has steadily deteriorated. i believe she was admitted for her mental state after the fall, because she did not sustain any injury from the fall. she has stage two renal failure, dm that has been poorly managed, while in care the pt developed a uti, yeast infection and c-dif, and her orientation has been progressively becoming worse while in the hospital.
as of today the docter refused to order a consult from speech therapy. nursing talked to speech therapy and they said they thought that pt should be puried at least.
