Ostomy Patient Care Standards


The following ostomy patient care standards have been developed for use in the IBD unit at Mount Sinai Hospital. It is the combined effort of the multidisciplinary team that provides the holistic care for patients families coping with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Educational strategies and sessions need to be geared towards meeting the outcome standards.

Outcome Standards

Post-operatively and Ongoing

Process Standards

Members of the multidisciplinary team become involved with the patient/family either through direct referral from the primary nurse, physician, or other team member; discussion at "bullet rounds"; patient care conferences; pre-admission questionnaire that would identify "at risk" patients or at the pre-admission visit.
