What's in My Bag? Creation of Ostomy Product Kits for Pediatric Nurses and Their Patients

Abstract

Ostomy care is challenging to nurses and patients. This is especially true when working with a pediatric population when ostomies often require highly specialized and individualized care routines. Negative outcomes may arise without the appropriate tools to provide care. Children's Hospital of The King's Daughter (CHKD) became aware that ostomy care and product selection had become problematic for nurses.
