CHANGING NG TUBE
Nasogastric tubes provide a vital route to deliver nutrition, fluid and medication to patients with impaired swallowing, unsafe oral access or increased energy requirements that cannot be met orally. The NG tube is inserted through the patient’s nose and into his/her stomach to provide them with food, fluids, and medication. Our expert and trained nursing staff at Noble Care followed the precautionary measures by keeping the skin around the NG tube clean by using warm water and a washcloth. Remove any crusts or secretions from around the nose. Use of adhesive remover to prevent damaging the skin and make sure the skin is clean and dry before applying the new tape. Nasal tubes are intended for short-term use. At Noble Care, we change the tube after every two weeks/as and when required , depending on the type of tube. We believe in caring for our elderly with utmost care and love.
