Peg Tube Feeding Care Plan



Ref: CP0146

Peg Tube Nursing Care Plan

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, PEG, is an endoscopic medical procedure in which a tube, PEG tube, is passed into a resident’s stomach through the abdominal wall, most commonly to provide a means of feeding when oral intake is not adequate.

Neurological conditions are most commonly associated with such disability and constitute the most common indication for PEG. Many stroke sufferers, for example, are at risk of aspiration pneumonia due to poor control over the swallowing muscles.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will quickly guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
