Patient : Hi,
If an anorexic is a female who's 5' 1'' tall, 75 lbs and never exercises, can someone place a 5150 hold on her or put her in a hospital or treatment center against her will? I hope that's impossible.
If she doesn't eat or drink a supplement drink in a hospital or treatment center, can she be forced to have a feeding tube? I hope not.
If she is only tube fed, how many calories does she receive daily from the feeding tube? I hope it's less than 800 calories.
Can she just receive nutrition from an I.V drip if she doesn't eat or drink a supplement drink in a hospital or treatment center?
She is an anorexic who's 5' 1'' tall, 75 lbs and never exercises. Also, she never eats more than 340 calories a day, but she drinks 4 cans of soda a day (not diet soda), and she doesn't have any health problems.
