Primary: To determine the effectiveness of the rectal trumpet compared to the standard care in maintaining skin integrity in patients with fecal incontinence.
Hypothesis (H1): There will be no difference in the failure rates of rectal area skin integrity between subjects receiving the rectal trumpet and those receiving treatment as usual (staqndard care).
Secondary: To determine the ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and level of patient comfort with the rectal trumpet compared to the standard care in patients with fecal incontinence.
Secondary (exploratory) hypotheses:
There will be differences in the ease of use of the devices, costs of the devices, and patient comfort relative to the devices.
