Nurse Education Nursing Assistant Skills
Overview:Nursing assistants will often need to care for residents with urinary catheters and ostomies. Nursing assistants need to master the special considerations and skills needed to provide care and assistance with urinary catheters and ostomies to maintain resident health, hygiene, and prevent infection.
Medcom's New Nursing Assistant program on ostomy and urinary catheter care provides new nursing assistants with the information they need to competently provide care in these areas. This program has been revised to be more concise and easier to understand by clearly identifying each of the three stages of the procedures it describes: preparation, the procedure itself, and completing care.
- Properly Empty a Urinary Drainage Bag
- Provide Daily Catheter Care
- Change an Ostomy Bag
