In denial

hbc6

This is a 55-year old male client in Mahushu. He is TB and HIV-positive, and not drinking his treatment because he believes that his been witched, so he uses traditional herbs. He has been bedridden from July until now, but he is still in denial stage. He don’t want to drink his treatment. We visited them to show the sisters-in-laws how to bathe him, and turn him every two hours, and how to empty the catheter. We gave them pampers, gloves, mask, savlon, linen saver and we bathed him.
