United Career Institute School of Nursing instructors teach practical nursing program students the proper procedures for performing tracheostomy suctioning.
This critical procedure clears the tracheostomy tube and is essential for proper breathing. Sterile techniques should be used to keep the patient free of infection.
Practical nurses are essential members of the healthcare team because they perform important functions like this and others, such as conducting physical assessments, caring for wounds, performing IV therapy, monitoring vital signs, collecting medical specimens, and more.
