Collect Supplies:

  • Gather ostomy pouch
  • Skin barrier
  • Disposal bag
  • Tissue and cloth for cleaning
  • Water
  • Optional: scissors , pen, measuring card, and accessories.

Prepare the Skin Barrier

Prepare the Skin Barrier and Pouch
1. Measure the stoma using a stoma measuring guide before every barrier application (if using a pre-sized barrier opening, go to step 4).
Prepare the Skin Barrier and Pouch
2. Trace the determined barrier size opening onto the skin barrier. The skin barrier should fit where the skin and stoma meet. Verify that no skin is showing between the skin barrier and the stoma to help prevent leakage and skin irritation.
Prepare the Skin Barrier and Pouch
3. Using small curved scissors, carefully cut an opening in the skin barrier to match the pattern. Do not cut beyond the line on the release liner.
Prepare the Skin Barrier and Pouch
4. Remove the release liner from the skin barrier. Set aside with adhesive facing up.

Remove Used Pouching System:

Remove Used Pouching System
1. Carefully lift an edge of the adhesive and peel downward, gently pushing the skin away from the skin barrier. Properly dispose of used pouch and skin barrier. Do not flush down toilet.
Clean and Dry Skin
2. Clean the skin with water or with gentle soap as recommended by your healthcare professional. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not use oils, powder, lotion, or lotion-type soaps on the skin.

Apply the Hollister New Image Pouching System:

Apply the New Pouching System
1. Center the skin barrier opening over the stoma in a diamond shape. For tape bordered barriers, remove the backing paper on both sides and press adhesive against the skin.
Apply the New Pouching System
2. Apply gentle pressure to the skin barrier for about a minute for best adhesion.
Apply the New Pouching System
3. Attach the drainable ostomy pouch to the skin barrier by engaging the lower edges of the pouch flange and the skin barrier flange. Press the two flanges together. A series of "clicks" will confirm you are doing it correctly. No more "clicks" means the pouch is secured.

Hollister New Image 2-Piece Skin Barrier Usage Tips

  • If using a barrier ring or paste, apply it to the sticky side of the skin barrier next to the stoma opening as directed
  • The skin around your stoma should not show any signs of rash or sores
  • Irritated skin should be evaluated by a healthcare professional
  • Your stoma will probably be swollen after surgery. It may take several weeks or months for the stoma to shrink to its permanent size.
  • The stoma may bleed slightly when you clean it.
  • The use of skin protective wipes are not recommended under extended wear skin barriers as they may decrease wear time.
