There are many different types of wounds such as diabetic ulcers, stasis ulcers, and surgical wounds. Many home health's have wound care teams.
Having a wound treated in the privacy and comfort of your home is very convenient. One of the advantages of having a wound treated at home is infection control.
Home health nurses are knowledgeable of specialized treatments and products. Not only does the home health nurse assess and treat the wound, but they provide education to promote wound healing.
This education includes nutritional counseling, --skin break down prevention-- and pain management techniques.
Home health coordinates closely with your doctor. This team approach assists in decreased healing time and increased wound healing success.
