Outpatient Ostomy Clinic
Established in 2009, the Huntington Hospital outpatient ostomy clinic provides preoperative and postoperative ostomy services to our patients and their families. Specially trained and certified wound, ostomy and continence nurses, provide education on daily maintenance of temporary and permanent stomas, ensuring both patients and their families are comfortable and secure with every aspect of ostomy care. In addition, they assist patients in dealing with the emotional issues surrounding life with an ostomy.
Some of the inpatient and outpatient ostomy services we provide include:
- Preoperative counseling and stoma site marking
- Post-operative teaching
- Product selection
- Hygiene management
- Stoma Care
- Evaluation and treatment of skin and/or stomal problems
- Referral for medical supplies
- Lifestyle adaptation
Our outpatient ostomy clinic is located on the first floor of the La Vina building (west campus) in the outpatient rehabilitation department.
We offer an ongoing ostomy support group, held the third Thursday of each month. Below is a list of the upcoming support group meetings.
