What is this article about?
A percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube is a feeding tube that is inserted into the stomach via a surgical incision in the abdomen (known as a stoma). A PEG may be inserted if a person is unable to safely eat and drink through their mouth. When caring for a client with a PEG tube in situ, you should be able to perform basic personal care of the stoma site as well as identify any red flags that require an escalation of care.
