The lack of standardized processes around pediatric patients discharged from the children’s hospital with nasogastric feeding tubes were putting patients at risk for unplanned tube dislodgement. The project’s purpose was to determine whether the implementation of standardized process around pediatric patients’ ages one month to 18 years discharged with nasogastric feeding tubes decreased the number of ED visits for unplanned tube dislodgement during a ten week period.
