Ostomy/Wound Care

We provide wound and ostomy care, support and education to both outpatients and inpatients in need of such services. A certified Wound/Ostomy Nurse is available for consultation and trained nurses assist clients in prescribed treatment and education.

Advanced wound treatment is available on an outpatient basis by the Wound and Vein Center.

Some reasons to call a wound/ostomy nurse to schedule a meeting:

  • Pre-operative marking and education
  • Post-operative and ongoing education for clients and their families
  • Skin irritation round the stoma
  • Bleeding
  • Leaking or short "wear time" for your pouch
  • Hernia/belt measuring
