Abstract

Pediatric patients undergoing tracheostomy placement are often medically fragile with multiple comorbidities. The complexity of these patients partnered with the risks of a newly placed tracheostomy necessitates a clear understanding of patient management and clinical competence. At our institution, a quality improvement initiative was formed with a focus on increasing the safety of these patients by developing a postoperative care guideline.
