A Day In the Life of a Wound Care Patient

A Day In the Life of a Wound Care Patient

Our marketing team recently wrote about a day in the life of a wound care patient on Healthworks Collective.

Providing outstanding patient care in our wound centers has always motivated our clinical team. We work with hospital systems across the country to ensure that patients with chronic wounds are getting expert care.

Our clinicians are trained to be sympathetic to the challenges that wound care patients are facing while their wound is in the healing process.

Christina Le, Director of Clinical Operations at USC/VHH wound center and Pooja Patel, Program Director at USC/VHH work tirelessly to make sure that patients have all the tools that they need for the best healing plans.

This requires efforts in educating both the patients and their families about care in the wound center and at home.

They teach about the different treatment modalities, wraps, bandages and changing of dressings, proper nutrition, smoking caseation, preventative care at home and more.

“Patients are often surprised by the amount of effort required by them in their own healing plan,” Le said.

“We realize all of the challenges that a wound care patient is facing today, and we want to make the healing process go as smooth and painless as possible,” Patel said.
