1. Sepsis due to urinary tract infection. Urine culture shows Escherichia coli, resistant to Levaquin. We changed to doripenem.
2. Urinary tract infection, we will treat with doripenem, change Foley catheter
3. Hypotension. Resolved, continue intravenous fluids.
4. Ischemic cardiomyopathy. No evidence of decompensation, we with monitor.
5. Diabetes type 2. Uncontrolled. Continue insulin sliding scale.
