How Does The Wound Care Program Work?
All patients with wounds are assessed by an RN upon admission. An individualized
wound care plan is developed in consultation with the patient’s
physicians and WOCN as needed.
Patients with complex wounds are automatically referred to our Wound Ostomy
Certified Nurse (WOCN): (a) patients who have Stage III and IV wounds,
(b) patients with non-healing wounds, (c) patients with Ostomies
Our licensed clinical nurses, alongside our WOCN are proficient in advance
wound care treatments, negative pressure dressings, colostomy care, urostomy
care, Ileostomy care, etc.
Our WOCN and Quality Team meet regularly to perform quality audits and
develop plans for continued progression in the field of wound healing.
