Tracheostomy Recall? NOT ME! Computer mess continues

Shiley DCT Trach Tube

Shiley DCT Trach Tube

As you may have heard in the news there was a big recall on Shiley Disposible Cannula Tracheostomy Tubes (DCT) I on Thursday got the letter and yelled to my nurse Kelly “GET EVERY SINGLE TRACH UP HERE IN FRONT OF ME NOW!!!” And she went running around the house and gathered around 9 trach tubes. Seriously, my mom and whoever has some sort of fetish for ordering trach tubes really needs to cut it out! 9 Freakin trachs? I could intubate every one of my nurses endotracheally with all of these, though I would need to make them longer somehow, whatever. Anyhow she brought back the trachs and piled them all in my lap and I went through all of them saying “Clear, Clear, Clear” and so on. Until we went through all 9 freakin trach tubes.

Oh and I had to restore my computer for the 5th time this week! I HATE THIS!
