Changing chest tube dressings

  1. Hi all,
    Our hospital is writing out standards of care for our ICUs and we were interested in finding out how often everyone was changing chest tube dressings using foam or elastoplast tape? We realized that every 24 hrs. may be too much for most of our patients skin to handle, especially using the above tapes. Any input or suggestions would be appreciated.
