Tracheostomy Care

The providers at Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System (GHS) have created these resources to prepare our patients and their families for their transition home with a child who has a tracheostomy. Our goal is to help families know what to expect as they learn to care for their child.

We realize this is a stressful time, and our team is here to offer support during this learning process. Please take some time to review these resources and refer back to them as often as you need to. We are here to help you and answer any of your questions along the way.
