Spare Pump Makes Life Easier for Students With G-Tubes

H.AL.O. recently purchased a Kangaroo Joey Enteral Pump for use in the medically-fragile classrooms in the New Bedford (MA) public schools.
School Nurse Supervisor Karen Regan RN, MSN, said it saves time and makes life easier for students who cannot eat by mouth. Families are allotted just one pump, she explained. When parents forget to send it to school the nurses can use this “spare” with fresh tubing to feed students with g-tubes.
“This is less stress on parents who may have to leave work to transport the pump,” Karen said. As many as 15 students require g-tube feeding in the school district.
