Experts in Complex Wound Care

Upon admission patients with complex wounds undergo a complete skin and wound assessment. Our approach to treatment focuses on existing issues – especially non-healing and slow-to-heal wounds – as well as the prevention of new wounds. Teams consist of a physician, nurses, physical therapists and registered dietitians, with an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) certified in wound care to coordinate care. We are skilled in helping patients with multiple medical/surgical issues that result in difficult-to-close pressure ulcers, surgical wounds, and wounds due to acute or chronic illness. We also believe in education of both patient and family as a way of protecting skin breakdown in the future.

Inpatient Complex Wound Care

Every patient is different, so rehabilitation must be individualized. Our inpatient program supports each stage of recovery. At Gaylord, rehabilitation is physical, emotional, and social. The goal is to achieve maximum personal independence and a reentry to the community.
