Long term mechanical ventilation

  1. 0 This is the area that I have been working in for the last few years. It's very specialized and not very common. Does anyone else work in this area?

    I think you may find more peers in the LTAC or Home Care forums. They would have the most experience with this type of patient.

    I work on a 27 bed unit taking care of people on long term ventilation in a long term care setting. Most of the people I take care of have neuromuscular diseases or spinal cord injuries. I'm an RN. There don't seem to be very many of these places in canada where I live so it's hard to do research on patient care standards. Facilities are either acute care or nursing homes and not many blends between the two. I didn't realize they were so common in the US. The term skilled nursing facility doesn't seem to exist here.
