Description: 
The purpose of these orders is to try and prevent a bowel accident within the first 24 hours after your surgery. We like the operative dressing to remain in place for at least 24 hours. A bowel accident would contaminate the dressing and require changing sooner than we would like. The stool would also contaminate the wound where the debridement was done.
