Background: The trend of unplanned extubations is rising. Unplanned extubations are a safety concern for patients. A ventilator bundle is in place to guide nurses and respiratory therapists for weaning and extubating patients who meet criteria; it is not always being used. This concern has been discussed at the ICU safety team, ICU NP, ICU ROE, and ICU leadership meetings.
