Using Hollister New Image 9" 2-Piece Drainable Ostomy Bag Clip
The Hollister New Image 9" 2-Piece Drainable Ostomy Bag typically comes with a plastic clip used to close the bag once it has been emptied. Here's a general step-by-step guide on how to use the clip:
- Empty the bag: When the ostomy bag is full or needs to be emptied, locate the bottom outlet of the bag. This is where the clip will be used.
- Open the clip: The clip is designed to slide or snap open. Look for a tab or a small lever on the clip. Depending on the design, you may need to push, slide, or lift the lever to open the clip fully.
- Close the clip: Once you have emptied the contents of the bag, gently fold the bottom of the bag upwards to ensure a clean closure. Place the folded end of the bag into the opening of the clip. Ensure that the bag is aligned correctly within the clip to avoid any leakage.
- Secure the clip: With the bag correctly placed in the clip, push, slide, or snap the lever back into a closed position. You should hear or feel a click when the clip is securely closed.
- Double-check: After closing the clip, run your fingers along the edge of the clip to make sure it is completely sealed. This helps to prevent any potential leakage.
