Ostomy Care Department
The Ostomy Care Department is staffed with specialty trained nurses including registered nurses certified in wound, ostomy and incontinence nursing. Services include evaluation, management and education of patients with abdominal stomas, fistulas, drains and incontinence. Outpatient ostomy siting is available and we also serve inpatients with new ostomies. Pre-op patient education is available.
A support group is offered for ostomy patients and family members. It is generally held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Felician Conference Room at St. Joseph Hospital and features a guest expert speaker.
