Ostomy Care

About Ostomy Care

Ostomy surgeries are common for people living with digestive, urinary, and kidney diseases, and generally create an opening called a stoma. Making post-surgery adjustments and learning how to clean stomas and ostomy pouches can leave many people confused, frustrated, and in the dark. That’s why Agility Health provides professional and sanitary ostomy care at home from licensed and helpful nurses.

Our nurses are certified to provide medical assistance that promotes stoma health and educates patients on the basics of stoma and ostomy pouch cleaning and maintenance. This gives patients a sense of independence and confidence, all of which they could use when dealing with a sensitive medical issue such as this. At Agility Health, we’ll nurture you with quality ostomy care you won’t find anywhere else in the San Francisco Bay area.

Feel Comfortable & Taken Care of with Our Ostomy Care at Home

Adapting to medical issues and devices can be a steep and complex learning curve. With Agility Health, you’ll have access to highly trained and attentive Wound, Ostomy, Continence (WOC) nurses and caregivers that will assist patients in getting quality ostomy care at home. Having a nurse educate patients on ostomy care will not only make them feel confident about caring for their stoma, but it will also prevent possible infections from developing. Our nurses are fully screened and licensed to help patients learn everything there is to know about caring for the ostomy pouching system. These services include changing and sealing the pouching system, preventing leakage, and cleaning the area around the stoma.

Our ostomy care extends far beyond the home. At Agility Health, patients will be assigned to their very own personal care manager to assist them throughout the entire process. Our experienced and attentive care managers supervise the in-home care team and provide assistance with hospital visits, transportation arrangements, and medical referrals. Care managers will also guarantee each patient receives quality and reliable in-home ostomy care and education.

How Our Ostomy Care Works

We understand there can be a lot of uncertainty and unfamiliarity when it comes to proper stroma care, which is why our WOC nurses will educate and equip patients with the confidence to care for their stoma. Our skilled nurses are highly knowledgeable about all kinds of ostomies including colostomies, urostomies, and Ileostomies. Proper ostomy care is vital to prevent the stoma from becoming irritated or infected.

Once a patient is confident enough on their own, our nurses will be available to assist with any questions that may arise and will occasionally make a visit to check on the stoma and pouching system. However, if a patient notices any issues with the pouching system or the skin around the stoma, we strongly advise that they contact their nurse, caregiver, or doctor right away. Agility Health is ready to help you with our ostomy care at home. If you or a loved one is in need of care, give us a call today.
