I have a pt who used to have a trach but was decannulaed a long time ago.  The stoma never closed.  I know the whole in her neck is still a tracheostomy.  It's still a stoma in her trach.  Would I document this as a decannulated trach?  I don't want it to sound like it just happened and it is an emergency.
