    Hi there,

    We have one RN present for the first 15 minutes of the infusion and then vitals q15 until the infusion is complete. No other staff are typically in the room.

    Hi!  If you could please respond to the following regarding PEG administration in your institution it would be GREATLY appreciated!

    1). How many RNs are present in the room when Peg is being administered?
    2). Is there anyone else in the room during the administration? (Pharmacist, MD, etc)

    These questions stem from our clinic administering PEG in the PM when our nurses start to go home for the day.  We are trying to develop guidelines to make sure we have all positions covered.  Thank you!
