Apologies if this has been asked before - I did a couple searches and couldn’t find an answer though.
My Dad is 70, and started at home overnight PD about 3-4 weeks ago. In addition to end stage CKD, he also has moderate alzheimer’s, and as a result when he’s woken up to use the restroom a couple times over the past few weeks, he’s disconnected his line because he forgot he’s not supposed to remove it. Aside from this, he hasn’t had any issues with the treatment, and has seen some improvement in his condition. His nurse is now talking about switching him to 3 PD that’s 3 x’s a day during the day, due to the risk of infection from improper disconnection of his line overnight.
Is there anything else we can do to help prevent him from disconnecting the line? Are there any kind of safety locks/clasps available that he couldn’t easily undo, or some other out of the box thinking that would allow him to continue the overnight treatments?
