Nasogastric Tube Care at Noble Care Nursing Home

Nasogastric tubes play a crucial role in delivering nutrition, fluids, and medication to patients who have difficulty swallowing or require increased energy intake. At Noble Care, our expert nursing staff is trained to provide meticulous care when managing nasogastric tubes to ensure patient comfort and safety.

Insertion and Maintenance

The insertion of a nasogastric tube involves passing the tube through the patient’s nose and into their stomach. Once in place, our nursing staff follows strict protocols to maintain proper hygiene and prevent complications. We use warm water and a washcloth to clean the skin around the tube, removing any crusts or secretions to prevent skin irritation. Adhesive remover is used to protect the skin and ensure proper adhesion of the tape holding the tube in place.

Routine Tube Changes

Nasogastric tubes are intended for short-term use, and at Noble Care, we adhere to a schedule of changing the tube every two weeks or as needed, depending on the type of tube and the patient’s condition. Regular tube changes help prevent infections and ensure the continued effectiveness of the tube in delivering essential nutrients and medication.

Patient-Centered Approach

At Noble Care, we prioritize the well-being and comfort of our patients above all else. Our dedicated nursing staff approaches nasogastric tube care with compassion and attention to detail, ensuring that each patient receives the highest standard of care. We believe in treating our elderly residents with the utmost respect, dignity, and love, providing them with the care and support they need to maintain their health and quality of life.

In conclusion, at Noble Care, we are committed to providing exceptional care for our elderly residents, including meticulous management of nasogastric tubes. Through proper insertion techniques, routine maintenance, and a patient-centered approach, we strive to ensure the safety, comfort, and well-being of all individuals under our care.
