Ostomy Care

Ostomy Care

Ostomy care is demanding since the caretaker must regularly collect and clean the waste in his pouch. Ostomy patients require special attention to keep the wound clean and the bag adhered to the skin. After Care Home Health offers the best ostomy wound care and skilled nurses to assist ostomy patients.

Wound care, ostomy, and continence nurses visit patients in their homes to teach them and their carers how to manage gastritis and live comfortably with an ostomy. To better care for the patient, they provide a detailed and comprehensive ostomy treatment plan. It’s only a click away to get the ostomy care you want.

What Is Ostomy Care?

With an ostomy, proper care may make life easier. The waste no longer exits the stoma when you have an ostomy. It leaves the body through the ostomy’s opening portion of the intestine. The stoma is the name for this section of the gut. Because the stomach has no muscles, it is impossible to manage when waste or gas escapes the body. Assume that a portion of the intestines or gastrointestinal tract is malfunctioning. Your doctor may undertake surgery to open the patient’s abdomen in that circumstance. An ostomy is a medical term for this type of opening.

 

Special Considerations of Ostomy Care

When patients are discharged from an inpatient facility, ensure that they have access to a community nurse, that they can clean their pouch system independently or with the assistance of a caregiver, that they have spare materials, and that they are informed of the signs and symptoms of health problems and where to seek help.

Patients with new food requirements due to an ileostomy or colostomy should see wound care or ET nurse and be referred to a dietitian. They should give you an ostomy care plan that is all-inclusive.

Gas from the gut might block the ostomy bag, leading to a low but involuntary “farting” sound. Patients can “burp” the bag via the top opening of a two-piece device by opening a corner of the ostomy bag from the top to allow the air out. Dietary restrictions may also help reduce the amount of gas produced in the intestines.
