Wound, Ostomy & Continence Care

A Wound Care Certified (WCC) nurse provides expert guidance to patients, caregivers on the wound care.

This is accomplished by:

  • Assessing each patient with a wound and suggesting appropriate interventions to promote wound healing
  • Working closely with physicians in providing the most effective wound care possible
  • Providing in-depth training to Agency nurses on interventions necessary to prevent skin breakdown and wound management
  • Assessing patients for appropriateness for a Wound Vac (a special device to assist in wound healing)
  • Teaching patients and/or caregivers how to care for a wound.

Ostomy Care :

A nurse will assess the patient’s wound/ostomy and consult with the patient’s  physician to develop a care plan and provide care related to preventing infection, promoting healing and independence with care.

Continence Care is for patients experiencing urinary voiding issues. A bladder scan can be utilized to determine bladder function and urinary retention. This is a painless, non-invasive procedure using a small portable ultrasound machine which prevents the patient from having to endure an invasive bladder catherization which may be uncomfortable.
