FAQ - The PEG Feeding training course

Frequently asked questions

We've answered the most common questions our training experts get asked regarding PEG Feeding. If you have further questions, please give us a call and we can answer them.

What is PEG feeding?

PEG, short for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, feeding is a procedure of placing a flexible tube through a person's skin/abdominal wall and into their stomach so they can be fed and given the fluids they need.

Do you need training for PEG feeding?

It's recommended to take training for PEG feeding because staff should be aware of how to perform this procedure correctly to avoid the risks of contamination, possible complications and poor hygiene.

Our PEG Feeding training courses will ensure your staff are suitably trained and qualified to perform this procedure.

Can you PEG feed all clients after training?

PEG feeding all clients should be performed by suitably trained, supervised and qualified members of care staff only. So, if you have successfully completed PEG Feed training, then you can perform the process safely for all clients.

Who can administer PEG feeding? Normally a doctor administers PEG feeding, but a trained licensed nurse can reinsert a PEG tube if needed.
Can a PEG feeding tube be removed?

Yes, a PEG feeding tube can be removed if a patient meets nutritional requirements by mouth and does not use the PEG tube for
feeding and therefore, it is best the PEG tube is removed to avoid any complications or infections.
