Wound Ostomy Continence Care

Mahaska Health Partnership Educates on Wound Ostomy Continence Care

Do you suffer with painful wounds that won’t heal, loss of bladder or bowel control, or issues with your ostomy? Mahaska Health Partnership’s Wound Ostomy Continence (WOC) Nurse, Cindy Donohue, is trained to handle these sensitive health issues with care, counseling and support.

According to the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society, a WOC Nurse is a specialist who uses education, preventive care, counseling and various therapies to treat chronic or difficult wounds, new or complex ostomy patients and people with incontinence concerns.

“As a WOC Nurse, I have advanced education and ten years of clinical experience in this area, which helps me assist people with these concerns,” said MHP WOC Nurse Cindy Donohue. “Having a WOC nurse care for you can often lead to faster healing time and improved quality of life.”

A WOC Nurse should be contacted if you are experiencing the following:

• Pressure ulcers

• Chronic or non-healing wounds

• Surgical wounds that fail to heal

• Wounds of the legs and feet which can be caused by diabetes

“There are certain conditions that can put some people at greater risk for developing non-healing wounds,” said Donohue. “Incontinence, limited mobility, chronic disease such as diabetes, and age can all play a big role in the development of a chronic wound.”

When you seek the help of a WOC Nurse, he or she will assess your wound and determine the cause, define treatment options, coordinate care with your healthcare provider and implement preventative measures for the future. For more information about the different types of care a WOC Nurse can provide, contact MHP’s WOC Nurse Cindy Donohue at 641.672.3403.
