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. The Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is the definitive resource promoting excellence in professional practice, quality care, and improved patient outcomes in WOC specialty practice. It can be used to articulate the value of WOC nurses to administrators, legislators, payers, patients, and others...

BACKGROUND: Autologous formulations rich in bioactive proteins promote cutaneous tissue regeneration. This case report describes our experiences with a platelet-based autologous formulation in the management of a hard-to-heal and severe gunshot wound. CASE: A healthy, 34-year-old man suffered an accidental gunshot wound of his right foot. After cleansing with saline and application of vacuum-assisted closure therapy for a period of 5 weeks, the resulting full-thickness wound had a surface area of 20 cm and did not show progress toward closure despite ongoing treatment...

BACKGROUND: The identification of deep tissue pressure injury (DTPI) in the early stages of evolution presents a challenge, as skin compromise is only visually apparent when evidence of damage reaches its outer layers. CASE DESCRIPTION: We describe use of an alternative light source (ALS) to enhance visual skin assessment in 3 cases. Case 1 was a 47-year-old African American man with a hyperpigmented inner buttocks and a mixture of partial- and shallow full-thickness skin loss from incontinence-associated dermatitis and friction...

PURPOSE: This purpose of this study was to measure the prevalence of incontinence, incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), and pressure injuries (PIs) in a local health district in Australia. We also aimed to determine associated evidence-into-practice gaps. DESIGN: Multisite mixed-methods study. SUBJECTS AND SETTINGS: The sample comprised 250 adult patients in 12 units across 4 hospitals; their mean age was 73 years. Nurses caring for the patient at the time of the audit were questioned on nursing practice for patients with incontinence...

This integrative review considers the role of skin occlusion and microclimate in incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), with a particular focus on disposable, body-worn, absorbent incontinence products. Although the mechanisms are not fully understood, the primary causes of IAD are well-established: occluded skin, in prolonged contact with urine and/or feces and exposed to abrasive forces, is more likely to be affected, and each of these factors can be influenced by wearing absorbent incontinence products...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to describe development of the Specific Self-Care for Ostomized Patients Questionnaire (CAESPO) instrument and evaluate its construct validity, internal reliability, and test-retest reliability (temporal stability). DESIGN: Prospective evaluation of psychometric properties of the instrument. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The study sample comprised 125 persons (n = 89, 71.2% men) with a temporary (n = 42, 33.6%) and permanent (n = 83, 66...

Enteral nutrition (EN) is the introduction of nutrients into the gastrointestinal tract through a tube placed in a natural or artificial stoma. Tubes may be passed into the stomach (gastrostomy) or the jejunum (jejunostomy) in patients who cannot obtain adequate nourishing via oral feeding. Following placement, nurses are typically responsible for management of gastrostomy or other enteral tube devices in both the acute and home care settings. This article summarizes guidelines developed for nursing management of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy or jejunostomy (PEG/PEJ) and gastrojejunostomy (PEGJ) tubes, developed by the Italian Association of Stoma care Nurses (AIOSS-Associazione Italiana Operatori Sanitari di Stomaterapia) in collaboration with the Italian Association of Endoscopic Operators (ANOTE-Associazione Nazionale Operatori Tecniche Endoscopiche) and the Italian Association of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (ANIGEA-Associazione Nazionale Infermieri di Gastroenterologia e Associati)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to describe experiences of and evaluate psychosocial and health-related quality of life of individuals undergoing ostomy surgery for severe, chronic constipation. METHODS: A search of the local ostomy archive and the electronic hospital episode statistics database was performed in a large tertiary referral center. Study outcomes were evaluated retrospectively using clinical notes and prospectively via administration of the City of Hope Ostomy Quality of Life questionnaire, Medical Outcomes Study Short Form-36, Hospital Anxiety and Depression tool, and a specially designed ostomy-specific questionnaire...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a novel, noninvasive perfusion enhancement system versus beds with integrated alternating pressure capabilities for the prevention of hospital-acquired sacral region (sacral, coccygeal, and ischium) pressure injuries in a high-risk, acute care patient population. DESIGN: A prospective randomized trial of high-risk inpatients without preexisting sacral region pressure injuries was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Metformin is considered a first choice for oral treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes in the absence of contraindications. Colorectal cancer is the second most frequent cancer among the general population; low anterior resections and temporary diverting ileostomies are commonly performed in this population. As the incidence of type 2 diabetes increases, the use of metformin in patients with both type 2 diabetes and an ileostomy will most likely increase as well. CASE: We present the case of a patient affected by colorectal cancer who developed a severe metformin-associated lactic acidosis (MALA) after creation of a temporary ileostomy to protect a low colorectal anastomosis...
