I have a Patient who is on hospice She has


Q: I have a Patient who is on hospice. She has just had a cath put in because of a severe diaper rash. There is a TON of sediment in the line so much so that it blocked the line. They started doing 10ml flushes of saline and when that didn't work they put in a bigger cath and started doing vitemin C 1000 tabs, and 60mls of vinager and saline at .25 % now However she is having pink discharge and the line is still getting blocked. Every time they come out and diagnos her things go bad. Last time they put her on morphine and nearly killed her. I need to know how to help this woman! Can you give me any advice?
