My pt has an input of 192ml and output of 26ml from ostomy including 2 full diapers by the end of my shift. Is this normal?
depends on how big the child is.
Does your facility weigh diapers?
The child is a 2yr old and weighs 27lbs
I work home health and we don't weigh the diapers
What did you clinical supervisor tell you? Two full diapers sounds pretty good to me.
How long was your shift? Two full diapers in an 8 hour shift is fine. But 192 mL of intake in an 8 hours is less than the maintenance fluid requirement for a 27 lb child. Ostomy output would depend on what is normal for the child/his underlying condition.
Thank you for all the responses!
