The Ostomy Association of Solano would like to offer our support to the patient, his/her family members and those selected by the patient. Our volunteers understand your concerns as we’ve been there too.
The visitor listens to your concerns; answers questions and can recommend tips for everyday life with an ostomy. A packet of printed materials and our newsletter will be provided.
Our visits are offered pre-operative or post-operative. At this time our visitations are only offered by telephone or email. We follow all HIPPA regulations for your privacy. A member of our group will call you and assist you in any way they can, and will try to answer your questions. If a member of the group is not able to assist you, we have two associate, CWOCN (Certified Wound Ostomy & Continent Nurse) Registered Nurses that we can refer you to, that can help you with your concerns.
We make every effort to match your request with a same-type surgery person of the same sex.
To request a visitation please complete the Visitation Request Form form.
