Approach to Treatment

A wound care clinician assesses each patient admitted to our specialty hospital within the first 24 hours of admission to ensure all wounds are identified in a timely manner and an individualized plan of care is developed. Wound care protocols have been developed based upon evidenced- based medicine to ensure best practices are followed. All patients are reassessed by the Wound Care Team on a weekly basis.
Wound Care Team members are required to stay abreast of the latest research and technology in the field of wound care.

In an effort to develop a benchmark for hospital acquired pressure ulcers, Nexus Specialty Hospital reports data to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
