Also, in my hospital system, we have “safe suction” cards that hang at the bedside (espeically in peds, but also in adults). These cards have the trach size, emergency trach size, suction length and correct catheter size, trach change date. This way, anyone coming in the room to help can see it and not guess. Lots of people take these home and use them for their homecare nurses.
