Disposing of an ostomy bag doesn’t have to be a big ordeal. In fact, with today’s products, most of them come with easy-to-use, disposal bags. Still, many new users (as well as those who have used inferior products in the past) may find themselves unsure or nervous about which types of bags to buy.
In addition to that, many people may also be embarrassed about the odor. This is something that is addressed with many of the manufacturer’s disposal bags, which are also odor resistant.
Since there are a number of questions surrounding the proper way to dispose of an ostomy pouch, the experts at Sarasota Medical Products wanted to share a little more information about it.
Disposal bags are easy and simple to use. All you have to do is fill it up, tie it in a knot at the top, and throw it away. And not only can you get rid of your waste in them, there is also room for any trash or wrappers from your pouch change. If you are still worried about the smell filling the room, you can take them straight to your outdoor trash bin.
If you find yourself in a pinch, without any disposal bags available, zip lock bags or even dog poop bags can handle the job until you get a chance to restock your supply. And for a greener option, there are several flushable products available as well.
There is no reason to be embarrassed about disposing of your ostomy pouch. Especially not when there are plenty of safe and convenient ways to do so. Your friends here at Sarasota Medical Products can help make this process easier and faster. You can reach us by dialing 941-377-1451.
