Wound Care and Healing Program
Our expanded Wound Care and Healing Program is available at both St. Luke Health Services and Michaud Residential Health Services. The program is available to both Short-Stay Rehabilitation patients and long-term skilled nursing care residents.
Our program specializes in the treatment of complex and hard to heal wounds that can result from a variety of acute or chronic conditions including venous ulcers, arterial and diabetic wounds, pressure ulcers, surgical wounds or traumatic injuries.
We also utilize Wound Vac therapy, which is used to treat diabetic wounds and pressure ulcers leading to successful outcomes.
Our Wound Care and Healing Program makes it easier for those in our area to access our expertise to heal existing wounds, prevent recurring wounds and provide education to our patients and their families.
Who Needs Wound Care?
Most wounds we experience in everyday life heal by themselves. Whether it is a cut or an incision from a recent surgery, the majority of us heal without the need for specialized interventions. However, if you or someone you know suffers from a wound that will not heal, you know how painful and frustrating it can be.
How Our Wound Care and Healing Program Works
Following an initial assessment and consultation with our Medical staff, our team consisting of a Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurses, Registered Dietitians and Physical Therapists will develop a treatment plan for your ongoing care. Whether you receive Wound Care services through Short-Stay Rehabilitation or long-term skilled nursing, our team continuously monitors your treatment and progress, and work together to achieve a successful outcome.
Turn To Someone You Trust
Our Wound Care Team prides itself of having three Certified Wound Care nurses (through The National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy). Together with the rest of our Team, you will receive the same quality care and services you have come to expect from our St. Luke Family of Caring.
