Our long-time, experienced nursing staff includes dedicated wound care nurses who effectively treat wounds under the direction of a Board Certified Wound Nurse Practitioner who rounds weekly at Bradford Hills. Our specialized wound care modalities includes e-stim, diathermy, wound VAC therapy and dynamic pressure relief mattresses.
Following best practices in wound management and trained in the latest wound care techniques, our team effectively treats:
We have rigorous protocols in place to stimulate tissue growth and faster healing of existing wounds, and to prevent the development of new wounds or pressure sores.
Our nurses change wound dressings frequently to maintain a clean and bacteria-free wound bed, and encourage and assist our patients to turn as needed. We provide surface support that includes low pressure air loss mattresses, and special wheelchair cushions. Of critical importance to the healing process is proper nutrition. Our dietitians work closely with our nurses and doctors to ensure every resident receives the diet they need.
