Wound Healing Program

Print


Every wound has a unique set of circumstances and there are many different types of treatments available for each. Pyramid Home Health Services wound healing program is focused on addressing the underlying causes of each wound. While Pyramid Home Health Services has a broad formulary of wound care products available, the foundation of our wound healing program lies in our objective review of the factors that caused the wound and in our establishment of a plan of care that focuses on the treatment of those factors.

Every year thousands of patients are discharged home from hospitals and skilled nursing facilities with wounds and ulcers not completely healed or with new ostomies. Pyramid Home Health Services wound healing program is led by a certified wound care nurse and employs staff specifically trained in wound types, treatment products and support surfaces, evidence-based treatment guidelines and nutrition. Our holistic, team driven approach promotes use of the most efficient combination of resources to heal your patient’s wounds faster and avoid their reoccurrence.
