Care of the Individual Receiving Enteral Nutrition

In the past, aides in home care and long-term care have had limited exposure to individuals receiving enteral nutrition, commonly referred to as tube feedings. However, this is changing rapidly with the increase in the level of care needed for individuals in home care.
Objectives
• Explain the difference between enteral nutrition and normal digestive process
• Describe when enteral nutrition can be used as well as not used
• Recognize different types of tubes, formula and equipment associated with enteral nutrition
• List common enteral feeding complications and possible causes
• Identify observations requiring prompt report to the nurse
• State care and support the aide can provide related to enteral nutrition issues

Contact Time
1 contact hour(s) based on 60 minute contact hour
