Case Study #2 Mr D is an 85 yowm who has lived with his son and daughter-in-law for the last 6 years. He broke his left femur a year ago and has not been able to get around well since then. His mental abilities have declined further over the past year. Mr. D had new dentures made that fit well so he no longer needs a soft pureed diet, but does not always eat well despite the new dentures. He is back in the hospital for a total hip replacement, a year after his initial left femur fracture. On post-op day 4, complications arise and Mr D develops sepsis and is transferred to the ICU. He was immediately placed on antibiotics to start treating the sepsis. However, as a result of the sepsis, Mr D develops an ileus and the nutrition support team has been consulted for recommendations for TPN (parenteral nutrition) feedings.
