Gastrostomy Tube Replacement for HBPC Providers Online Course
This video-based course is intended for home-based primary care (HBPC) providers and practice staff, describing step-by-step instructions for the replacement of a gastrostomy tube in the home setting. Gastrostomy tubes are used on patients who have difficulty with oral intake and/or need the tube to vent air or drainage from the stomach. These tubes are placed by gastroenterologists in a hospital setting but may need to be replaced after the patient returns home. Home-based primary care providers can help patients and their caregivers by replacing PEG tubes in the home vs. sending the patient back to the hospital for a lengthy and costly replacement procedure.
  1. Recognize when a gastrostomy tube needs replacement.
  2. Remove and insert a replacement gastrostomy tube.
  3. Prepare the equipment needed to replace a gastrostomy tube.
  4. Apply appropriate coding and documentation practices for performing a gastrostomy tube replacement.
