Reducing the enteral syringe spend within Havering Dietetics

Patients receiving enteral feeding in the community require plastics/ancillaries to allow feed to be pumped/bolused via the feeding tube.  Multi-use syringes are deemed adequate for use in the community for this purpose, however acute hospital policy uses single use for infection control purposes.  Therefore, many adults have been registered with single use plastics which results in a higher spend per patient.



Key message / aim

To reduce the cost of incorrect ancillaries for adults receiving enteral feeding in NELFT Havering by 5% by September 2018
