Soins complexes à domicile pour enfants

Everyday tips


  • Your child can continue regular daily activities, according to the limits of your child’s health conditions. Make sure that the button or enterostomy long tube is always well protected. Discuss this with your healthcare team.
  • However, your child should avoid:
    • activities that may cause the tube or button to move accidentally (eg, pulling, contact sports),
    • the use of scissors near the tube and tubings,
    • having pets in contact with the pump and tubings, which could cause damage.
  • Your child can return to school or daycare if otherwise well. If necessary, discuss your child’s equipment, care and feeding needs with school or daycare staff. Discuss your child’s return to school or daycare with your healthcare team.
  • Your child can be placed on his or her stomach for play and placed in a baby carrier or car seat.
