One of this chapter’s major functions is to provide, when required, ostomate and their spouses or significant other visitors. Until such a time as it is safe to visit in person, all present visitations are by telephone only.
All our visitors must be trained in accordance with guidelines laid down by the United Ostomy Associations of America. If you are an ostomate or will become one in the near future or if you have a patient or friend who has or will have an ostomy, get their permission and then call our answering service at (954) 537-0662 to request a telephone visitor. We provide emotional support to both ostomates and their families.
With the May 2003 HIPAA laws regarding privacy, it would be wise to get permission to call us in writing.
We DO NOT give medical advice; nor do we actively assist in physical care of the stoma.
