Wound, ostomy, and continence (WOC) nursing was recognized as a nursing specialty by the American Nurses Association in February 2010, and the Society published the original scope and standards of WOC nursing practice in May 2010.

BACKGROUND: In our hospital, air-fluidized therapy beds were used for all patients undergoing surgery for the creation of myocutaneous flaps. These beds were associated with staff injuries and patients reported dissatisfaction. The WOC nurses were asked to find an alternative support surface for postmyocutaneous flap patients. CASES: We report findings from 5 patients placed on a low air loss immersion mattress after myocutaneous flap surgery. On week 2, per our hospital's clinical pathway, all were transferred to our critical access hospitals with the immersion therapy mattress...

The Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN) Society charged a task force with creating recommendations for assessment, selection, use, and evaluation of body-worn absorbent products. The 3-member task force, assisted by a moderator with knowledge of this area of care, completed a scoping literature review to identify recommendations supported by adequate research to qualify as evidence-based, and area of care where evidence needed to guide care was missing. Based on findings of this scoping review, the Society then convened a panel of experts to develop consensus statements guiding assessment, use, and evaluation of the effect of body-worn absorbent products for adults with urinary and/or fecal incontinence...
