Introduction to Wound services
The challenges of effective wound management are increasingly complex. However the Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nurse Clinicians are qualified to provide specialty care for patients with acute and chronic wounds, standard and continent diversions, and fecal and urinary incontinence. In addition, we are trained to provide support to patients who require explicit assistance in the physical, emotional and social realms of health.
Our Services Include:
- Direct care and consultation on individuals with:
- Draining wounds
- Fistula wounds
- Vascular ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Neuropathic wounds
- Chronic/ refractory wounds
Continent Diversion Care:
- Conservative Sharp Wound Debridement
- Bio-dressing (i.e. Maggot Debridement Therapy)
- Topical Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
- Pre-operative Stoma Counseling
- Stoma Siting
- Post-operative Stoma Assessment
- Post-operative Stoma Care Giver Training
