Chronic, non-healing wounds, those that haven’t shown signs of improvement in several weeks or are not responding to typical treatments, need extra help to heal. Difficult wounds of this type are often caused by injury, disease or poor blood supply. Heartland Regional Medical Center provides specialized treatment for these types of wounds.
1. Generally the physician presently treating the patient's wound will refer the patient to our wound care clinic.
2. When a patient calls for his or her first appointment, our staff will ask a few questions about the wound and the patient's health in general.
3. Before beginning treatment, our team of doctors and nurses will thoroughly evaluate the patient's wound and review the patient's health and medical history.
4. Tests might be conducted to tell us more about the patient's blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as determine if there's any infection present.
5. From there, our physicians will develop a treatment program based on our assessment of the patient's special needs. Treatment programs will likely involve regular visits to the wound clinic. Each patient's progress is documented and adjusted as necessary.
6. We are in constant communication with our patients' physicians throughout their care. Therefore, once a wound is healed, our patients return to their doctors for follow-up care. And of course, patients continue with their physicians for any related ailments like diabetes or hypertension.
