We do incident reports on unplanned extubations because there is risk during the reintubation process and to help track for PI projects. It happens...there are some kids that feel the need for a new tube everyday....it is just them.

About that sandbag...we can't do that, one it isn't developmental proper and two, it is considered a restraint and we'd have to do restraint charting on it, so we don't use them.

If we are busy, we don't only have one vent...no more than two. One summer we had 60 kids and 20 some of them were vented...no way could we have staffed with 30 nurses or so.
