What is an Nasogastric Tube (NGT) Re-insertion?

Nasogastric tubes (NGT) are fine hollow tubes that are inserted through the nostril into the stomach. They can be connected to syringes or tubes, which can be used to deliver tube feedings and enteral nutrition, administer medications, or drain stomach contents.

The initial insertion of a nasogastric tube must be done at a hospital. However, our Care Pros will be able to assist with the changing or re-insertion of tubes and the setting up of NGT feeds subsequently.

Reviews from Our Customers

Supporting and guiding primary caregivers

I was desperately looking for someone to come in and provide my Grandpa’s new helper with basic caregiver’s training before she officially starts her training that is scheduled much later. Homage was the only agency that went out of the way to expedite my request and the Nurse that was tagged to us was very very very helpful and professional. Really appreciate the work that Homage do for the community!

Top questions about Nasogastric Tube Re-Insertion

Service FAQ

What are nasogastric tubes (NGT) used for?

An NGT is used to administer nutrition, hydration, and medication. It is a way to get substances into the stomach when it isn’t possible or advisable for someone to swallow them by mouth. It can also be used to supplement oral intake when people are having trouble meeting their nutritional needs.

An NGT can also be used to drain or empty the stomach, which may be needed when someone has swallowed something toxic or because they have some disorder that requires stomach emptying, such as a bowel obstruction.

How long can a nasogastric tube (NGT) be left in?

Some nasogastric tubes can stay in place for up to 6 weeks before being changed, as long as they are carefully looked after and the user does not experience any complications.

Tubes that are made of materials unaffected by gastric acid can remain in the stomach for a longer period compared to PVC tubes, which can only be used for up to 2 weeks.

Who are the Homage Care Professionals?

Homage’s Care Professionals are individuals who are passionate and dedicated to delivering care to families and care recipients. 100% local, they are trained caregivers, qualified nurses, and certified therapists, each with a unique set of skills, experiences and specialisations.

Are there subsidies available for Homage's NGT re-insertion services?

Yes, you can apply for a financial subsidy to defray the cost of home nursing care services. Here is a list of Financial Assistance Schemes in Singapore, such as the Home Caregiving Grant, CareShield Life, and Interim Disability Assistance Programme for the Elderly (IDAPE) that might be helpful for you.

How quickly can I receive care by Homage?

We aim to match a Care Pro to your requested visit within 2-3 days. For bookings made 1-2 days before the visit date, we will try our best to match a Care Pro.

Urgent cases that require care within 24 hours will be matched on a best-effort basis. Do take note that a $30 surcharge applies for urgent cases.

What is the shortest duration for a visit?

The duration of a care visit starts from just one hour, and the length of the visit will depend on your family’s preferences and your loved one’s needs.

Wonderful app wonderful service

Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.

Doctor is qualified, friendly

Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
