need a stoma nurse in RGV

I work for a colorectal surgeon in south texas and I need to locate a STOMA NURSE immediatly due to the nurse that helped us before with colo and ileostomy patients stopped taking patients. Is there a bank of information where this is readily available to find a location here in hidalgo county. Please any information is greatly appreciated.

I have a couple of ideas for you that I hope will help. Here is the website for the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Society:

http://www.wocn.org/


You may also want to try contacting the Oley Foundation:

http://www.oley.org/programs.html


Oley's focus is on enteral and parenteral nutrition (tube feeding) but just as with colostomy and ileostomy, gastrostomy and jejunostomy procedures can require the assistance of stoma nurses for proper healing and care, so they may be able to guide you in the direction of Ostomy Nurses. Oley is a very well-known, extremely "connected" organization in the GI community and they have extensive resources for patients and clinicians.
