Is there any type of a gizmo which can keep a patient from pulling their feeding tube apart where it joins at the m9000t lopez valve?

My daughter keeps pulling the feeding tube out of the lopez valve. we have tried everything. also we don't know why she is pulling the tube out. maybe she is bored maybe she has had enough to eat etc. no one seems to know why. it has become a real problem for us. she lives in a nursing home.

the dieticians at the home say she needs as much feed as they are giving her. if she pulls the tube ; she does not get all the food she requires. however several people have told me to stop feeding her. its a real problem.

Maybe she does not want a feeding tube at all. Respect her wishes.
