Under the direction of a vascular surgeon, and board certified wound nurse practitioner who rounds weekly, our long-time, experienced nursing staff provides specialized wound care treatment that includes e-stim, diathermy, wound VAC therapy and dynamic pressure relief mattresses.
Following best practices in wound management and trained in the latest wound care techniques, our team effectively treats:
- Diabetic Ulcers
- Arterial/Venous Ulcers
- Pressure Ulcers
- Surgical Wounds
- Postoperative Edema & Pain
We have rigorous wound protocols in place to stimulate tissue growth and faster healing of existing wounds, and to prevent the development of new wounds or pressure sores.
Our nurses change wound dressings frequently to maintain a clean and bacteria-free wound bed, and encourage and assist our patients to turn as needed. We provide surface support that includes low pressure air loss mattresses, and special wheelchair cushions. Of critical importance to the the healing process is proper nutrition. Our dietitians work closely with our nurses and doctors to ensure every resident receives the diet they need.
