We prevent hospitalization, readmission and avoidable complications associated with acute/chronic wounds by working with you as a Whole Individual, Personalizing and Communicating your Personalized Plan of Care.
Non-Healing Wounds contribute to limb loss as well as severe systemic infection affecting all body systems resulting in hospital admissions.
We understand that as one ages the signs and symptoms of infection and complications present very differently than in the younger crowd. An example of this may be one may not have a fever but a low temperature with severe infection. Infection from a wound may initially present as confusion, imbalance and falls with fracture. As one's immune system ages one may not have the classic redness and swelling associated with skin infection of a skin tear.
We know living with Complex, non-healing wounds can have much more subtle effects. Social isolation, depression, increased nutritional needs and withdrawal can contribute to overall decline in health. This decline may set the stage for major health events that lead to hospitalization.
It is essential to personalize the medical plan to one's unique needs. This includes incorporating the science, developing strategies to minimize symptoms as well as risk factors for complications such as infection or depression. Strategies include applying the evidence-based medicine, standards of care, manage acute & underlying chronic disease.
Above all else, we recognize wounds are unique to each individual, deeply personal, may be really miserable and must be managed with a personalized approach.
This is how we keep you out of the hospital and prevent complications.
