management of an elderly with multiple comorbidities
My Dad is in his early 50s, very frail, has endstage kidney disease on dialysis, a month ago underwent CABG with 4 grafts.  needed antiplatelet therapy due to clot formation in the wounds.  Is anemic, has leg edema, has had multiple transufiions, on multiple drugs including folvite, amiodarone, acitrom (like warfarin), clopidogrel, metolazone,  Livogen (B Complex Vitamin formulation), and rabeprazole who has loose watery stools often in the bed without the knowledge of soiling the clothes.  I suspect he has c. diff. b'cos of multiple drugs.  Please advise how this should be treated.
