Stoma Care- Changing a Colostomy Bag (Nursing Skills)

In this video, we’re going to talk about stoma care. Now, the wafer and bag for an ostomy only NEEDS to be changed every 3 days, or if it’s leaking. But, you still need to be able to assess the stoma itself. In this case we’re going to show you how to replace the bag and clean and assess the stoma. Start by putting a towel under the patient on the side of the stoma. We love you guys! Go out and be your best selves today! And, as always, happy nursing!
