Wounds that fail to heal in time can get infected and become difficult to manage. The best way to prevent that is with regular dressing changes, but that is easier said than done for the wounded. Our compassionate and skilled nurses can bring that service to your home to alleviate your stress and ensure optimal healing.
All of our registered nurses (RNs) are trained to provide sterile wound dressing and pain management services that can optimize the healing process. This includes coming up and implementing a personalized wound care program that can not only enhance the healing process, but the patient’s overall health as well.
Our trained and dedicated staff understands that even the smallest of lesions can turn into gaping wounds if they are not treated early. The multidisciplinary wound care program they implement not only treats them, but also the underlying causes as well. The entire approach is based on the following principles:
Patient comfort for optimal healing.
Evidence based treatments and certified standards of care.
Continuous assessment of wounds, patients and ongoing treatment plans.
Collaboration with the attending physician for personalized wound care.
Measurement and reporting of outcomes.
Making changes in the treatment program as per healing levels.
Our aim is to optimize the healing time and ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. We use only clinically proven, high quality products to ensure they receive premium care.
