Feeding Pole

Not what I expected to see in use at a long term care nursing home but rather at a hospital. My room sharing spouse returned from hospital surgery where she was fitted with a feeding tube that directly enters her stomach because she is unable to eat through her throat.

She is now starting to be fed all nourishment from a pole mounted bag which will take 3 hours for each meal and it is something I never expected to see at a nursing home. It looks as though it will take a while to be completely comfortable with but compared to the choking and pain that was becoming the norm is truly a blessing. Wow.
