Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good day
Your father is in a serious state. There is a lot of stress to the body. He may require ICU admission to propoerly monitor his body function and help him recover. In Diabetes infections are more dangerous and can spread easily inside his body. Blood sugar needs to be controlled and proper antibiotics must be given also keeping kidney function. All this requires ICU admission at best.
