“The care and care of people with wounds and ostomies (a surgically created opening that communicates a hollow internal organ with the outside to promote fecal or urinary elimination, respiration or nutrition) is generally in high demand in different health care institutions, therefore it is necessary to have a special care service for these situations”Explained Ángela María Pulgarín Torres, professor at the Faculty of Nursing and postgraduate coordinator.
