Decided to pick up a few shifts with the PDN agency that I worked with before the hospital job. They offered me a shift with a "busy" infant who is...orally intubated.
I'm beginning to wonder if the shift coordinator - who is not medically trained - became confused. The kiddo isn't home yet, but she kept insisting that he was coming home intubated but didn't have a trach.
Has anyone ever heard of this before? I'm just thinking that this can't be reasonable/possible. But my only experience is with adult burn patients who have gone from prolonged oral intubation to being trached and weaned off the vent. So my train of thought could be totally off base.
