Premier Infusion Care provides Enteral (tube feeding) therapy for patients whose structures that normally permit food to reach the small bowel are either diseased or nonfunctioning. A tube is placed in the stomach (Gastrostomy tube/G-tube) or the intestinal tract below the stomach (J-tube). A tube may also be placed in the nose, and this is called a Nasogastric tube (NG tube). This allows patients to receive the necessary nutrition and water needed to maintain weight, hydration and strength. Premier Infusion’s clinical pharmacy staff, in coordination with the patient’s caregiver, physician and home health provider will monitor each patient’s progress and will provide recommendations in the even the patient experiences complications such as weight gain/loss, gastrointestinal (GI) side effects, or any other complication.
