Wound care is important because chronic wounds can have serious consequences. Non-healing wounds require specialized care because underlying conditions prevent the wound from going through the expected healing stages. The longer a chronic wound goes untreated, the greater your risk of infection, amputation, and other complications.
Surgery is a common cause of many wounds. Most patients are sent home before total healing of these wounds can take place. Some patients are also discharged with drains or other ports that must be cleaned and bandaged daily. Wounds, depending on location can be difficult to self-treat. It may even be difficult to find someone who can or is willing to help. We are here for you! We have specially trained nurses who have years of experience in wound care and are ready to assist you with your needs.
