I'm a graduate nurse currently working. In nursing school
, we weren't thoroughly taught trach care. I'm not too comfortable when I'm placed on the trach unit. (Which is often) My training in that area was minimal. I've watched a professor deep suction a patient, but I never done it myself. Has anyone else experience a similar situation? I was basically just placed in a situation that makes me uncomfortable. As a new nurse, how did you become more comfortable caring for trach patients? What tips do you have for caring for trach patients?
