Nurses across the country are such a crucial part of healthcare, but this week in particular (April 16-22, 2017) is dedicated to the nurses that specialize in the field of wound, ostomy (urostomy, colostomy, & ileostomy) and continence care (such as bowel or bladder incontinence). At 180 Medical, we feel honored to be able to work with certified nurses in better assisting our ostomy patients with their diverse, individual needs, whether they’re dealing with skin irritation around their stoma, leakage issues, or something else that requires the medical advice of a trained professional.
If your life has been touched by a WOC (Wound, Ostomy, & Continence) nurse, whether due to issues with pressure sores and other difficult-to-heal wounds, bowel or urinary incontinence, or ostomy issues, you know you have a compassionate advocate on your side who can offer your educational information, personalized care, and more. Although there are thousands of certified WOC nurses across the country, we appreciate every single one, because we see firsthand how much they affect the lives of the patients they advise and treat.
One of our Ostomy Specialists, Cait, had this to say about the special relationship 180 Medical has with WOC Nurses: “When talking to our new ostomy customers, who may often feel frustrated by their situation, it’s wonderful to be 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 love that opportunity to be able to make sure our customers get the best care possible.”
