Phone call from Palliative Care Nurse

C telephoned V, Rachael's dietitian, to tell her that the 2cal feed is giving Rachael a bloated stomach. The dietitian explained that the 2cal feed was a last resort and that the bloated feeling may last up to twenty four hours.
Rachael asked if a different giving set would help and showed C a Farrell bag and giving set on the Internet.
C phoned V again to see if she can arrange a different giving set for Rachael. C also asked what is the minimum amount of calories that Rachael needs daily. V said 700 ml which is roughly 1050 kcal. V will get in touch with C who will then contact Rachael.
