Wound Care continues to be an area of clinical focus in the Post-Acute Care setting.  Managing patients with GI ostomies (colostomies and ileostomies) is a challenge in the post-acute setting. These procedures have high 30-day readmission rates and post-acute staff often have limited knowledge on managing this patient population. 

Myra Varnado of Corstrata is back to provide education on this and to give an understanding for the general nursing management of colostomies and ileostomies including:  Normal GI function, expected effluent character and volume, specific complicating factors, and an introduction to a variety of Ostomy appliance types and their appropriate use.
