As far as I know NG feed is only offered inpatient in NZ except if you have it permanently.for example, we have it, but it was a god almighty fight to get it and only because we have now got a diagnosis of intestinal failure.so cascs d would have to have it inpatient and NZ clinicians are reluctant to hospitalise because that costs the system $$$.
It's not something where they would do it out patient with returns for feeding, only inpatient.
I honestly believe to get traction with this your d now needs a short hospital stay with NG feed -to show the anorexia that actually there are things that can be done if weight gain has stalled.if your d refuses you will have to section her to get that done though casc- but if that is the only way forward then don't let anyone try to scare you out if it.
The window of treatment for this closes abruptly so despite what someone may tell you,it might not be the same for your child.it really depends on therapists.
For some services the window banged shut for us the day my d turned 17-but we then used the mental health act to get treatment done.even if your d went to residential that might work.they could then see her level of compliance for themselves.that might then give you the proof you shouldn't need but have to produce anyway, to get your d more help.
We may be the test case actually for having an NG tube at home in NZ ,I do not know of anyone else.if so, hopefully we have paved the way to make it easier if that ends up being an option you need to explore Casc.
But yeah, if they were taking her obs properly,testing her blood and with a low weight-I think you have grounds to try again for admission.if not hospital, then residential.
I'm not sure if anything on my thread would help you, but I have definitely had to fight within the system bloody hard to get help for my d.
You could also involve the disability commission.tell your therapist that due to poor treatment options this is something you are looking into in the next week.you could ask your therapist to speak to the REDS team in Auckland to help.stress that time is of the essence.i know how hard it is to do this believe me, but I know I had to.i had to try everything I knew how to do and go outside the box as well.
I won't keep writing reams, I promise, I'm just trying to give ideas of how to start moving forward using the systems we have.
If I think of anything else, I will do a short post (I promise it will be short!)
