SUBJECTIVE: Mr. W.G. is 73 years old patient and was admitted to ICU from home on November 20 for COVID-19 Pneumonia (presented by SOB and weakness), which eventually required him to be intubated. On December 31, he was transferred to the ward with a tracheostomy. As of now, his Covid-19 Pneumonia was resolved, and the tracheostomy tube was removed since the patient no longer needed it. His vital signs were stable afterwards. He was in an NG tube, but insertion can sometimes cause him distress; that is why a PEG tube was inserted last January 05 that required a long discussion with her wife with the physician because she was against it at first. He has developed a stage III pressure ulcer in his coccyx on the unit but reported no pain. He has muscle weakness in his lower extremities (right and left leg); an indwelling catheter was inserted last January 07 and in diaper incontinence. Social History: He was retired, lives with his wife in a house, and has two children. He speaks English and is independent with ADLs before testing positive in Covid-19. He quit smoking in 2018 and has previously used cannabis (none recently).  Past Medical History: No known allergies.Hypertension, CVA (left parietal -occipital stroke 2015), Ex-smoker, CKD, AAA, Dyslipidemia Home Medications:Acetylsalicylic Acid, amlodipine, hydralazine, garlic, omega-3 DHA/EPA/fish oil, ubidecarenone, atorvastatin, hydrochlorothiazide Current Medications:Acetaminophen 1000 mg PO/Tube tid SCHAcetylsalicylic acid 80 mg PO/Tube daily SCHAmlodipine besylate 10 mg PO daily SCHLipase/Protease/Anglase 1 cap tube as directed PRN- declogging tubeAscorbic acid 500 mg PO daily SCHAtorvastatin calcium 20 mg PO bedtime SCHBisacodyl 10 mg PO bedtime PRNBisoprolol fumarate 10 mg PO daily @ 1600 SCHChlorhexidine/LidocaineDoxazosin mesylate 8 mg PO bedtime SCHGlycerin 1 Supp PR daily PRN- constipationIpratropium bromide 2 puff inhaler q4hr/prn Lactated Ringer’s 1000 ml @75 lm/hr IV q13h 20M SCHLactulose 30 ml PO BID PRN – bowel movementLansoprazole 30 mg PO daily SCHMultivitamin Centrum 1 tab PO daily SCHOndansetron HCI 4 mg IV q6hr PRNPolyethylene glycol 17 g daily SCHQuetiapine fumarate 12.5 mg PO QID/PRNSalbutamol sulfate 2 puffs Inhale q4h/PRN- SOBSennosides 2 tabs PO/Tube, bedtime/PRN- constipationSodium bicarbonate 500 mg tube PRN- declogging tubeTinzaparin sodium 4500-unit subcut daily SCHVitamin D 1000-unit PO daily SCH OBJECTIVE: Height: 1.71 m Weight: 68.3 kgAppears on his stated age. BMI: 24.3 (Normal weight)Vital Signs: Temperature: 36.9 degrees CelsiusPulse: (bilateral-radial)- 73 bpm, regular, 2+(apical)- 72 bpm, regular, 2+(bilateral-dorsal pedis): 74 bpm, 1+Blood Pressure: 153/77 mmHg (right arm- supine) Range: 152-159/ 76-77 mmHgRespiration: 16 times per min.
