In 2011, I started providing wound care services at a local skilled nursing facility for patients unable to travel to a wound care center. The need for this expertise and care grew rapidly and we formed United Wound Healing to meet that need. When the rising costs and burden of transporting patients to wound care centers increased, we created an even better solution to care for patients with acute and chronic wounds while they are in skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers. Our nurse practitioners with expertise in wound care assist skilled nursing center teams in weekly wound rounds, bedside debridement, and education/support.
We have redefined wound care where teamwork, expertise, and synergy equal better results, with increased patient comfort at an affordable cost. This team-centered approach to wound care has significantly reduced the need for costly transportation while reducing the number of residents with wounds.
United Wound Healing specializes in making skilled nursing centers’ teams better – and healing their patients’ wounds faster.
