Wound Ostomy Nurses

Our certified Wound Ostomy nurse is an expert in the most appropriate and up-to-date care for wound and ostomy patients.

The wound nurse makes joint visits with the patient's primary home care nurse to evaluate the patient and to make recommendations on the best products and treatment procedures to help the patient improve quickly and cost effectively.

This nurse also works closely with physicians and staff of the outpatient wound clinic to coordinate care and make rapid changes to treatment regimens when the need arises. In addition, the wound nurse coordinates care from the inpatient setting to the home, ensuring the patient's needs are met quickly and accurately.
