Gtube removed - MED A extend


Patient's gtube is removed as per MD order. Rehab will end 10/15-16. How long can I skill patient under MED A for gtube removal (2 weeks - 14Days?). I will code it as surgical wound with treatments.

A recent surgical site for a gastrostomy will likely take a week or 2 to heal, a stoma probably 2-3 days or within a week. Albeit it all depends entirely on several factors, your daily description of the wound or adverse effect is crucial to justify the need for treatment or the skilled service.
