CH: Enteral Feeding

Enteral feeding is a process where nutrition is delivered into an individual’s gastrointestinal tract via a naso-gastric tube, a gastrostomy or a jejunostomy.

The guidelines have been produced for safe practice which will assist staff to reduce the risk of infection associated with enteral feeding.

A downloadable Community Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Guidance document which can be adopted as a Policy by your organisation is available below.  Alternatively, a complete set of IPC Guidance documents are available to purchase @ £69.99 – details can be found on the flyer and resource order form.
