Patient : If an anorexic refuses to eat or drink a supplemental drink like Ensure and is fed by a feeding tube in a treatment center or during a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold, how many calories does the person receive daily from the feeding tube?
I hope anorexics don't get very many calories from a feeding tube daily.
