NGT are generally used in the short (one week) to medium term (up to six weeks) or for longer term feeding, which occurs via gastrostomy tubes or jejunostomies. There is a small risk that nasogastric feeding tubes can be misplaced in the lungs during insertion, or can be misplaced out of the stomach at a later stage. NGT Insertion
  • The National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) Patient Safety Alert 05 (2005) provides guidance to the NHS on checking and confirming that a nasogastric tube had been inserted into the right place. Reducing the harm caused by misplaced nasogastric feeding tubes was a Patient Safety Alert published by The National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) in 2005.
  • The NPSA 2011 recommended that all health care professionals involved with nasogastric tube position checks have been assessed as competent and that competency training should include theoretical and practical learning.

  • To promote a clear, consistent and evidence based approach to the insertion, care and management of nasogastric (NGT) and nasojejunal tubes (NJT).
