Wound Care Center at Hunt Regional
Wound Care Management in Greenville, Texas
While many common wounds like a scraped knee or a paper cut are mended after a thorough cleaning and coverage from a bandage, there are others that might not heal as quickly or as well. These are known as non-healing wounds – wounds that show no signs of improvement or fail to heal after a period of several weeks. What is more, is that non-healing wounds require special medical attention so that infection or even loss of limb can be prevented. Hunt Regional’s Wound Care Center is dedicated to providing this type of treatment.
Our Wound Care Center is located on the 2nd floor of Hunt Regional Medical Center at Greenville. Here, we provide primary treatment for hard-to-heal wounds resulting from diabetes, venous stasis disease and pressure ulcers from lack of patient mobility.
The managed care approach we take at the Wound Care Center allows us to assist the physician caring for specific wound problems, without interfering with overall patient care. Our interdisciplinary team of wound care specialists works together for improved healing rates and fewer amputations in chronic wound cases. Additionally, our staff has access to the nation’s largest database of treatment outcomes.
Treatments - How We Care for Non-Healing Wounds
Wound management begins with an assessment of a patient’s medical history and present physical condition. A personalized plan of care for each patient is then recommended, and is based on wound evaluation, vascular assessment, nutritional assessment and laboratory results. Possible interventions include:
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Infection control
- Skin grafting
- Pressure relief
- Skin care
