Every now and then I will speak with the wound care nurse at our facility and see if there is anyone who needs assistance with a complex task in changing or taking care of their own wounds. This task was for an individual with a colostomy bag. I got the steps from the wound care nurse and we both assisted the pt while actually changing the bag. I used SRT to help her recall the steps and the nurse makes sure that the pt is completing the task correctly.
* I also use this as a problem solving task on how to cut the bag, what to do if the cut is too small, and how to empty the bag.
