Ostomy and Catheter help the patient to manage bowel or bladder problems efficiently.

At Comfort Home Health Agency, we provide Ostomy and Catheter Care to help our patient maintain their health, hygiene and prevent infection while emptying their bladder. We help with the assistance of catheter, bowel, or stoma care.

Different types of Ostomy:

  1. colostomy is a kind of procedure that allows the stool to bypass an infected colon. It is normally an opening in the large intestine.
  2. An Ileostomy is a kind of procedure that bypasses a section of your small intestine and large intestine. It directly creates an opening into the small intestines.
  3. Urostomy is a kind of procedure that allows for draining the urine.
