Here are the general steps to install an ostomy bag: 

  • Clean the skin around the stoma: Clean the skin around the stoma with water and a mild soap, and dry thoroughly. 
  • Apply the adhesive ring: Apply the adhesive ring or flange around the stoma, making sure it is securely in place and completely sealed. 
  • Attach the bag: Take the bag and attach it to the adhesive ring or flange, making sure it is securely fastened. 
  • Check the seal: Check the seal between the skin and the bag to make sure there are no leaks. 
  • Empty the bag: As needed, empty the contents of the bag into a toilet or designated container. 
  • Change the bag: Change the bag as directed by your healthcare provider or according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Typically, bags should be changed every 1 to 4 days, or as needed. 

It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and seek the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure proper installation and use of the ostomy bag.
