Is it difficult to change a rectal tube that is torn? I was working at a hospital last week with a patient who had this and the tube leaked throughout the 12 hour shift.
I reported it to the nurse and said it needed to be changed because it was leaking all over the air mattress and the client's buttock was extremely red and excoriated. I'm a nursing assistant and wonder why no one wanted to change the tube. Is the procedure that difficult?
