The Edgerton Hospital Wound Clinic is lead by registered nurses who are certified and specially trained in acute and chronic wound care. Our nurses pride themselves on successfully healing even the deepest of wounds. They do this by working closely with you, your primary care physician and by developing a care plan that meets your individual needs.
What is wound care?
Everyone’s body heals differently and various factors can affect and disrupt the healing process. If your healing process is disrupted, you may be left with sores, wounds or infections that are unable or are very slow to heal. That’s where we come in. Our certified wound providers can offer extensive treatment including a comprehensive evaluation, wound cultures and vascular studies. We’ll create for you a comprehensive care plan for healing your wound. This may include pain and nutrition management, physical therapy, infectious disease and diabetes management.
If you have any of the following conditions, you may be at risk for developing non-healing wounds:
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Traumatic injury
- Complications following surgery
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Congestive heart failure
