——————————————- Original Message: Sent: 10/9/2020 4:51:00 PM From: Stephanie Davis Subject: NG/GT Feedings
We are trying to establish best practices surrounding our NG/GT Feeding policy. Currently, for our BMT patients we change our NGT/GT feeding bags and tubing consistent with hang time of formula (or breast milk)..usually every 4 hours. I am interested in hearing what other BMT units policies are surrounding feeds. Additionally, does your institution hang feeds/change lines differently once patients are engrafted? Or do you consider BMT patients immunocompromised until discharged?
Thank you. Kindly, Stephanie
