Our instructors have chosen to use Elsevier books Evolve Learning System online modules a part of our curriculum. You may remember the gem from a day or two ago regarding making sure not to trap breasts in the gait belt when transferring patients. I'm finding enough hilarious quotes that this may become a regular feature on my blog.
In reference to ensuring the proper placement of NG tubes, the module states:
"Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to identify signs and symptoms of accidental respiratory migration of feeding tube."
Apparently feeding tubes head South for the winter?
Who in their right mind would do this?
