At ABC Health Care, our pediatric private duty nurses in San Antonio can provide gastronomy feedings for young patients. This treatment involves placing tubes through the abdomen and into the stomach. This tube allows the patient to safely consume medication, liquids, formulas, and food. In many cases, when a child is discharged from a hospital, his/her doctor may order gastronomy feedings, and that’s where we come in.
Our San Antonio PDNs can provide 24-hour medical care to conduct routine gastronomy feedings. If your child’s doctor has requested these feedings to be done from home, then rest assured that all necessary machinery and/or supplies will be utilized to make treatment as comfortable as possible. Supplies typically used during these types of feedings include:
You can rest assured knowing that our private duty nurses in Bexar County will take every precaution when providing this treatment.
We invite you to reach out to us to learn more about our services, our team, and what we can do for you and your child.
