Could anyone please tell me if they are still using the Dobhoff feeding tubes and if so, are all of your nurses putting them in. Has any hospital gotten rid of them? If so, what was your criteria/rational for getting rid of them? If you got rid of them, what are you using instead. Thanks

our facility still uses dobhoff's.
any nurse used to be able to insert, but that was changed about a year ago. now the 3 nurses that also insert picc and midlines do the dobhoff tubes. we have 600-700 beds, so they are quite busy

We still use dobhoff tubes and nurses can insert them.
