It’s WOC Nurse Week! What does that mean? WOC nurses are nurses that specialize in wound, ostomy, and continence care. This may include working with patients who live with a urostomy, colostomy, or ileostomy as well as patients who live with bladder or bowel incontinence. Let’s take a moment to learn about the importance of the role of Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses.

About WOC Nurse Week

Nurses across the country are such a crucial part of healthcare. However, this week in particular is all about these specialized nurses.

180 Medical is proud to work with certified ostomy nurses. They help assist our ostomy customers with all their diverse and unique needs. Whether they’re dealing with skin irritation or unusual stoma changes, these certified WOC nurses are there to provide help, support, and medical advice.

Has your life been touched by a Wound, Ostomy, Continence Nurse? If you deal with pressure sores, urinary incontinence, or ostomy issues, you know you have a compassionate advocate on your side when you talk to a WOC Nurse.

180 Medical Employees Share How Important WOCNs Are

We appreciate every single WOCN across the country. We often see the positive impact they make on their patients firsthand since we specialize in providing ostomy products, along with catheters and incontinence supplies.

Ostomy Product Specialist Lindsey says, “I am so grateful for our connection to ConvaTec WOC Nurses. They are always so kind and helpful. It’s reassuring that they’re available to help with our ostomy customers’ medical needs.”

Cait, an Ostomy Specialist, also shared her thoughts about the special relationship 180 Medical has with WOC Nurses. “Our new ostomy customers often feel frustrated by their situation. I love being able to reassure them that not only are we here to help them, but we also have a connection to a team of certified WOC Nurses they can talk to free of charge! The fact that we work with WOCNs so closely allows us to raise the level of service we can provide. We can make sure our customers get the best care possible.”
