This lesson on Feeding Tubes includes a complete training packet. Each in-service packet takes approximately one hour to complete and fully meets the Medicare in-service training requirements. As aides need training, you can make as many copies as you want - there s no restriction when used with aides assigned from your office location. Remember that Home Health Aides must have 12 hours of in-service training every year. LESSON OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this program, the home health aide will be able to: Name two reasons for feeding tube insertion List three types of feeding tubes, and Identify two findings that home health aides should report. OVERVIEW A substantial number of homecare patients have feeding tubes. They may be temporary or permanent, nasogastric or percutaneous, with a variety of techniques for the feedings. In most agencies, home health aides are assigned to cleanse feeding tube sites; some agencies teach home health aides to assist with the feedings. Regardless of the extent of involvement in managing feeding tubes, home health aides need to know about the different types of feeding tubes they may encounter. The purpose of this in-service is to provide basic information about feeding tubes. The information can serve as a basis for teaching home health aides more specific information about the care of individual patients assigned to them.
