PEG tube feeding is a method of providing nutrition to patients who are unable to eat or swallow food on their own due to various medical conditions. PEG stands for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, which is a surgical procedure used to insert a feeding tube directly into the stomach through the abdominal wall.
At Care Onboard, we have highly trained caregivers who are experienced in providing PEG tube feeding at home to patients of all age ranges. Our caregivers work closely with the patient's healthcare provider to ensure that the feeding plan is customized to meet the patient's unique nutritional needs.
We prioritize patient safety by ensuring that the PEG tube is well-maintained, secure, and free from any risk of dislodgement or infection. Our trained professionals monitor the patient's tolerance to the feeding and adjust the feeding rate and volume as needed to prevent any nausea, vomiting, or other complications.
In addition to technical expertise, we understand the importance of providing compassionate care to our patients. We are skilled in providing emotional support and ensuring that the patient is comfortable and at ease during the feeding process.
We follow all the medical guidelines to prevent any irritation or harm to the surgical site and to minimize the risk of infection. Our caregivers are vigilant in monitoring the patient for any signs of complications or discomfort and will promptly report any issues to the healthcare provider overseeing the patient's care.
Overall, we are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care to patients undergoing PEG tube feeding of diverse age groups to ensure the best possible outcomes for their health and quality of life.
