What would a Stoma Emergency Kit contain:
3 one-piece (sizable)
Purpose of a Stoma Emergency:
The purpose of having a stoma emergency kit available at major drugstores is to help ostomates have a go-to place when they have either ran out of their supplies or they are having trouble with their insurance coverage or delivery. Sometimes you can receive stoma bags that are defective and will leak for no reason, these type of incidences happen and your insurance will give you a hard time re-ordering your supplies. We also understand that not all stomas are created equal but the bags that are sizable by cutting them with a pair of scissors from 1″ (25 mm) to 2 1/4″ (57 mm) or more would work for many ostomates. This is to not discount other ostomates that are bigger or are already getting personalized bags, we are working on that too. The purpose once again is to make ostomy supplies available to hold you together until you receive the normal ones in the mail from your place of order.
