Helping Patients Overcome Ostomy Challenges
By Beth Hoffmire Heideman, MSN, RN
Physiologic, psychological, and psychosocial issues
demand careful planning, monitoring, and creativity.
No one wants an ostomy, but
sometimes it’s required to
save a patient’s life. As ostomy
specialists, our role is to
assess and intervene for patients with a
stoma or an ostomy to enhance their
quality of life.
