Discontinuing Enteral Feeding Tubes

  1. 0 Does anyone have a policy/protocol regarding who may DC a nasally inserted feeding tubes, where the tip is in the small intestine. Our tubes are inserted under fluoroscopy by radiology, but RNs are reluctant to DC them, in part, because there is no policy. Thanks.

    We remove nasally-inserted enteral feeding tubes here. No policy - don't need one. Just tell the pt what you're going to do and pull it out. Pretty simple. No one here has a problem with it.
