Caring for a patient with a urostomy in a community setting.
Br J Community Nurs. 2008 Aug; 13(8):354, 356, 358 passim.BJ

Abstract

Around 7500 people in the UK have a urostomy. A urostomy is normally performed if a person has bladder cancer, congenital bladder abnormalities. Many people who have a urostomy have long term conditions and may require the help and support of community nurses. This article examines common complications of urostomy including stomal complications, urinary tract infections and dermal complications. Although stoma complications are common and can affect quality of life, many people with a stoma tend not to seek help. Community nurses can provide care and support to optimize stoma management and enable the person with a urostomy to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
