Basic Ostomy Skin Care: A Guide for Patients and Health Care Providers

This booklet features 19 questions and answers. Topics include changing the pouch, care of the skin and equipment, as well as tips on a variety of products. Not all patients who have ostomy surgery have a WOC nurse to take care of them. This brochure will help patients with a new ostomy and will also be a resource for health care providers who work with patients with ostomies.
