Remove Used Pouching System:
1. Carefully lift an edge of the adhesive and peel downward, gently pushing the skin away from the skin barrier. Properly dispose of used pouch and skin barrier. Do not flush down toilet.
2. Clean the skin with water or with gentle soap as recommended by your healthcare professional. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not use oils, powder, lotion, or lotion-type soaps on the skin.
Apply the Hollister New Image Pouching System:
1. Center the skin barrier opening over the stoma in a diamond shape. For tape bordered barriers, remove the backing paper on both sides and press adhesive against the skin.
2. Apply gentle pressure to the skin barrier for about a minute for best adhesion.
3. Attach the drainable ostomy pouch to the skin barrier by engaging the lower edges of the pouch flange and the skin barrier flange. Press the two flanges together. A series of "clicks" will confirm you are doing it correctly. No more "clicks" means the pouch is secured.
4. Close bottom of pouch. If using a Hollister New Image Two-Piece
drainable pouch, close the Lock N Roll microseal closure at the bottom of the pouch or apply a pouch clamp. Refer to the Lock N Roll Microseal Closure Care Tip for more information on how to use this closure system.
Emptying the Hollister New Image Drainable Pouch
Opening: Lift from the center of the transparent flap.
Draining: Position fingers on both sides of the drainable pouch tail, between the ribbed strips, and squeeze from the sides. Continue to hold the pouch open for cleaning
Cleaning: Clean and dry the inside of the pouch tail. Wipe the outside edge of the pouch tail.
Closing: Roll the ostomy pouch tail up tightly three times. Fold flap down aligning the fasteners together.

Hollister 2-Piece Drainable Pouch Usage Tips
- If using a barrier ring or paste, apply it to the sticky side of the skin barrier next to the stoma opening as directed
- The skin around your stoma should not show any signs of rash or sores
- Irritated skin should be evaluated by a healthcare professional
- Your stoma will probably be swollen after surgery. It may take several weeks or months for the stoma to shrink to its permanent size.
- The stoma may bleed slightly when you clean it.
- The use of skin protective wipes are not recommended under extended wear skin barriers as they may decrease wear time.

Hollister New Image Drainable Pouch FAQ
How do I prepare my skin before putting on a new ostomy pouching system?
For most people, water is sufficient for cleaning the skin. If soap is needed, use mild bar soap without lotions or creams that may leave a residue or film on your skin and possibly interfere with the adhesive. Skin protective wipes or sprays are not recommended under extended wear skin barriers as this may decrease your wear time (i.e., how long you can wear your skin barrier before it fails). Make sure the peristomal skin is clean and dry before applying your skin barrier.
How often should I empty my ostomy pouch?
Pouch volume varies by pouch type, but we suggest emptying your pouch when it is 1/3 to 1/2 full of output or gas. Do not let the pouch overfill; be sure to empty it before activities and bedtime.
Can I put water or oils in my ostomy pouch to make emptying easier?
Rinsing out your pouch with water is not necessary or recommended. Getting water around the stoma may cause the adhesive skin barrier to break down, which can lead to leakage. A lubricating deodorant made specifically for ostomy pouching systems, such as Adapt Lubricating Deodorant, can help make pouch emptying easier and is most suitable for those with colostomies or ileostomies. Do not put oils, cooking sprays, or other products not intended for use with an ostomy in your pouch.
Is my Hollister ostomy pouching system safe for an MRI?
All of the Hollister one- and two-piece ostomy pouches and skin barriers (with the exception of the soft wire closure found on our preemie and newborn pediatric pouches and our colostomy irrigation sleeves) are non-magnetic and non-metallic, which is considered to be MRI-safe.
