    Frage Gastric tube in the elderly people, necessity or cost saving ?

    Gastric tube in the elderly, necessity or cost saving ?
    My mother is in an old people's home. She eats and drinks very slowly. Sometimes she swallows herself. Now it was suggested to me to put a stomach tube at my mother's place. The (alleged) reason for it: Complaints while swallowing.


    But I suspect that this is mainly a cost saving. My mother needs one hour a day to eat and drink. During this time she has to be supervised. With a stomach tube, food and drink would simply run into her.


    Now my questions:


    how dangerous the operation is,


    What does liquid food cost?


    there are consequential damages or problems with this diet


    thank you for your answers
