Expert assessment and care
Certified wound and ostomy specialists provide individualized care for acute and chronic wounds using evidenced-based methods for maximizing independence and quality of life. Patients with chronic, complex, or non-healing wounds should be seen in the Wound Clinic. Patients with these types of wounds often benefit from debridement, advanced wound healing techniques, and advanced wound dressings/products. For example, Negative Pressure Wound therapy when indicated, disposable compression wraps, collagen, and advanced foam dressings to promote healing are often used.
Wound healing can be complicated by age, chronic disease, diet, activity level, immune function, vascular issues and radiation therapy.
The Wound Clinic can assist with lower extremity edema management in a limited capacity if there are no open wounds. Additional edema support can be accessed through Rehabilitation Services.
Ostomy certified registered nurses provide education and treatment to patients with ostomies. Pre-op stoma markings in the case of planned ostomy procedures can also be assessed. Self-care education and home supply coordination can be provided to those with colostomies, ileostomies, urostomies, and/or wounds to the peristomal skin.
