Common Sense, Ain't.......

If you have a gastric feeding tube put in, it would a really, really good idea to change it before it starts turning black and crusty from eighteen months of continuous use. And yes, your doctor really should have told you they need to be changed every 4-6 months, but....if you're going to have something hanging out of your body that's not original equipment, for the rest of your life, don't you think it might be a good idea to ask some questions about it?

I'd bet money that the Dr. DID tell this moron that his feeding tube needed periodic attention, one or more Nurses called repeatedly with the same info and sent half a dozen or more postards reiterating the information.

Mine did.
