Hi I was filling out a skills check list for when i come to work in the States, and under the ostomy appliances it has an heostomy. No body i know, knows what that is, including myself. I have tried to look it up on the internet to no avail, I have looked in my nursing books, to no avail and the stomal care nurses here at my hospital dont know what it is!!!
Please tell me what it is and where on the anatomy it is situated, which part of the ?bowel does it involve?
This is driving me nuts!!
