As part of the program at HSC that addresses the needs of medically complex patients, wound care management is offered. The program provides skin care management that promotes wound healing and is specifically tailored to each patient’s needs.

Our wound care program is an organized approach to management of patients with various types of wounds such as:

  • Surgical wounds
  • Status post-surgical flap procedures for pressure ulcers, trauma, or patients with pressure ulcers that require a interdisciplinary team approach to care

The team includes skin care consultants, physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists and nurses. Each member of the team utilizes their respective specialties combined with education, technology and equipment management geared to the needs of the patient and their family.

These patients benefit from the skin integrity program that is evidence-based, consistent with the current medical literature review and in compliance with regulatory standards.
