Wound Care

We are proud to be one of the few agencies in the city to provide a comprehensive, standardized wound healing protocol which allows for nurse consistency in wound management. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, our team of nurses and therapists work under the guidance of the patient’s primary physician and together treat the wound. The underlying medical and surgical problems that prevent successful wound healing are also assessed. Proper diet, specialized wound care, and management of existing conditions has proven to help heal difficult and/or chronic wounds. Our dedicated wound nurses are frequently updated and trained on new wound healing strategies under the supervision of our Director of Nursing, who is Wound Care Certified and follows strict Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurse (WCON) guidelines. Through digital imagery, a physician can assess the success level of the wound treatment plan. Constant communication between the wound care nurse and the patient’s physician is needed to ensure that all available treatment options are exhausted. We are dedicated to caring for patients with wounds and helping them to heal.
