Hello all! I am searching for the name and manufacturer of a fecal containment device used in an ICU I worked p.t. on about a year ago. The hospital I transfered to is doing a study for their ICU pt's with C. Diff.
The device resembles a latex glove (they also had latex free), with a hole at one end that is "glued" around the anus with the help of a triangle-shaped plug that helps the adhesive secure around the opening (the plug is removed of course...lol). The bag is then attached to a normal foley bag and the stool is collected in the foley. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it! ALong with many patients I'm sure!
