Tracheotomy Care: Suctioning

Staff in nursing homes need to monitor tracheotomy residents-every day, every shift.  Part of providing good tracheotomy care is literally listening to the patient’s breathing.  If fluid collects in a tracheotomy patient’s airway, it needs to be suctioned out.  Failure to suction tracheotomy patients can result in the patient asphyxiating.
