    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? First dose = 1 nurse for 1st 15 min and APNs or residents are notified to be on the unit; 2nd dose (usually in the infusion center both the RN and APN are in the room for the 1st 15 min); full monitors; then after 15 min we go into look at the patient Q15 for 2 hours from the start
    2). Is there anyone else in the room during the administration? (Pharmacist, MD, etc): no

    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!
