Children with tracheostomies are increasingly discharged home for continued care by their parents. Nurses are responsible for providing these parents with the extensive education required for a smooth and successful transition to home care. This article is intended to help neonatal and pediatric nurses to effectively prepare the parents of an infant with a tracheostomy to provide safe, quality care to their child after being discharged from an acute care setting to their home. This article discusses the knowledge, attitudes, and skills the parents are required to acquire prior to the infant's discharge. Home ventilation, airway management, suctioning, tracheostomy care, emergency management, safe home environment, equipment for continuous or intermittent ventilation, and supplies necessary for care are some of the topics discussed.
