Abstract Cleaning and reuse of single-use and single-patient-use enteral feeding equipment is common in Australia, particularly in ambulatory patients. This practice may result in feed product contamination and adverse clinical outcomes for the patient, and exposes the health professional providing the advice to liability for harm caused. The present article reviews the literature addressing cleaning and reuse of enteral feeding equipment to provide guidance to health professionals managing and supporting patients receiving home enteral nutrition. © Journal compilation
