What are some good sites where I can get information on colostomy care?

  1. 0
    I'm a nursing student and we need to do a teaching plan during our clinicals. I decided to do a colostomy care since I had 2 patients with colostomy and it was very interesting. it would be great if i had the actual simulator body to show the stoma but can't afford it as well as the bag. where can i get great info?

    Good for you! I think it's great to see someone interested in ostomy care.

    Who provides the ostomy supplies at your hospital? We use Convatec and the rep. gave
    us a plastic stoma to use for practise with applying the wafer plus several pouches.

    The United Ostomy Associations of America has a wonderful website of information, plus
    tips and perspectives from ostomates themselves.

    To make a "pretend" stoma, take a plastic plate, and turn over. Get some red modeling clay at the local hobby store, make a stoma, and attach to the plate (sometimes the clay will adhere on its own). Now you can demonstrate measuring the stoma with a measuring guide, cutting the correct opening, applying paste, and applying to stoma.

    Good luck!
