What Can Our Wound Care Patients Expect?
Your course of treatment depends on what type of wound you have. During your first visit, our staff will evaluate your wound and review your medical history. You may also need special tests that give us information about circulation to the wound. This will help to determine what course of treatment you will need.
Once a treatment plan has been prescribed, you will visit the wound healing center weekly or bi-weekly for specialized treatments and documentation of your healing progress. Keeping appointments and following directions are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome. Some things you can do to assist with your healing:
- Care for your wound at home as directed by the wound care team
- Take medications as directed
- Return for your follow-up appointments
- Keep regular appointments with your primary care physician while you are receiving wound care treatment
