AbstractAim: To evaluate the process of administration of medicines by gastrointestinal catheters performed by Nursing in a Neonatal Unit. Method: Observational cross-sectional study, of quantitative approach, which will be performed through systematic observation of the work process during drug administration, with the aid of a structured script. The number of doses to be observed will compose the research sample, which was calculated through the formula used for cross-sectional studies of finite population, resulting in 150 observations. The performance analysis will occur with a cutoff point of 70%. Expected results: Due to the unprecedented nature of the research in the neonatal context, the knowledge of the actions carried out may allow the implementation of barriers in the possible flaws in the process, in light of the analyzed data.
