Priority Wound Care
Patients with traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, infected, or chronic wounds receive specialized care from wound experts as an integral part of their hospital care. Wound care specialists are available for consultation in the hospital on weekdays, with a physician on call around the clock.
If ostomy is planned, a nurse certified in wound, ostomy and continence care is available prior to the surgery day to offer pre-ostomy patient education and mark the ostomy site. After the operation, certified nurses assist with post-operative care and manage bowel-, bladder- and kidney-related issues. Ongoing ostomy management and care of continence issues is always available and patients are encouraged to set up an appointment at the Wound Care Center after they leave the hospital to ensure that ostomy devices fit properly and are comfortable as you return to your daily activities.
