Order Sheet Addresses PEG Appropriateness

A new form has been created to assist primary care physicians and physicians performing Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement procedures.

The first part of the form should be completed by the patient's primary care physician. The second portion of the form should be completed by the physician doing the procedure. The form is blue in color and will be placed in the patient's chart. The goal is to increase the appropriate placement of PEG tubes in the medical center.
