Case Study 1: Prevented Transfer – Tracheostomy Change
Respiratory Therapist Jordan explains a real-life situation where rtNOW was able to assist a nurse at a nursing home when a resident was in respiratory distress. She was able to user her unique skillset, and the nurse’s hands, to diagnose the problem and walk the nurse through a tracheostomy change. Without rtNOW, the resident probably would have been transferred out of the skilled nursing facility.
