Feeding a Patient (Nursing)

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

Feeding a patient offers an opportunity to slow down and get to know them. In some instances, you may need to fully assist your patient with all aspects of feeding. In others, you may offer simpler coaching and setup.

In this course, you’ll learn how to assess a patient's readiness for oral feeds, evaluate swallowing ability, and check their functional status. You will also learn how to prevent complications like choking and aspiration, and what to do in case a patient does aspirate.

Take pride in learning how to feed a patient who would otherwise go malnourished without your assistance.
