A patient-specific plan of care is developed with the use of established, evidenced-based, clinical practice guidelines. Appropriateness and quality of care are carefully monitored to achieve optimal healing. Patients may be referred by a physician, health care worker or self-referred.
Conditions that generally benefit from specialized wound management include:
- Arterial ulcers
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Venous Stasis ulcers
- Vasculitic ulcers
- Chronic wounds
- Non-healing surgical wounds
- Traumatic wounds
Wound Center physicians may order or perform additional procedures to assess and assist in closure of the non-healing wound, such as:
- Outpatient diagnostic studies
- Laboratory specimens for differential diagnosis
- Vacuum-assisted wound closure
- Sharp debridement
- Application of bioengineered skin products
- Application of specialty medications appropriate to the wound care treatment plan
- Additional referrals to other healthcare professionals if needed
