Ileostomy Care

Signature Health Services can help with the management and treatment of an Ileostomy.

Ileostomy and How how we care for it

An ileostomy is a surgical procedure that consists in creating an opening in the abdominal wall to expose the ileum and allow it to remove solid waste from the body. This procedure is necessary when the colon or rectum is not working properly.

Ileostomy connects the last part of the small intestine to the abdominal wall and colostomy on the other hand connects the colon with the abdominal wall.

Signature nurses wash thoroughly, keep skin dry, monitor for any signs of infection, and educate you about your condition, medication, and self- management.

Skilled nurses at Signature Health services provide post-operative patients with specific information about drinking/eating, caring for drainage tubes, skin and wound care, ambulation, self-care, and signs and symptoms that require medical attention. Nursing care includes written information and demonstrations of such activities as care of the wounds and drains.

During the postoperative or chronic care period, our nurses serve as a source of information and a monitor of patient progress. Follow-up calls and visits to patients and families after surgery are essential in determining the welfare of the patient, offering suggestions for managing the patient’s care, and learning if any complications are developing. At the same time, Signature’s nurses can assess the psychological condition of the patient and his or her adjustment to a new way of living and suggest any needed resources.
