Last night I was working at the hospital and had to empty an ostomy bag on a patient with C-Diff.
YUCKO! I was so paranoid that I hurried out of the room without telling the patient goodbye. Isn’t it funny that a patient with C-Diff who has an ostomy bag doesn’t have a full face mask precaution along with gowning up for the aides taking care of them? Maybe other aides or nurses are more skilled at turning their heads at an angle when emptying ALL ostomy bags, and from here on out, I will be too.
