Question: How do you score tube feedings?

Answer and Discussion: In IRF-PAI Version 2.0, tube feedings are considered use of an adaptive device. Therefore, it can be scored at levels 6-1 depending on the amount of assistance required to administer feedings. In Version 3.0, tube feeds are not considered as eating a meal. Tube feedings alone, would be score 88 - eating not scored due to medical condition. If tube feedings are supplemental to eating, then score the amount of assistance needed by the patient for eating activities.
