Home Enteral Feeding
All patients discharged with a PEG or PEJ from a hospital in Cornwall will be known to the Home Enteral Feeding Service and will be regularly reviewed.
Refer any patient who does not have regular contact ( at least every 6mths ) with the home enteral feeding team or who has symptoms potentially related to their feed e.g.
- unintentional weight loss
unintentional weight gain
nausea, vomiting, bloating
For problems relating to the PEG tube or stoma contact the gastrostomy nurse on email@example.com
