Complex Wound Care Solutions

Complex Care Solutions for WoundsVNSNY’s interdisciplinary team of clinicians aim to provide the highest level of wound care for our patients. A skilled nurse, or for those with difficult wounds, a Certified Wound Ostomy Continence nurse (CWOCN), will work closely with each patient’s VNSNY nursing team to establish a treatment plan and evaluate progress every step of the way.

While specific treatments vary by patient, our nurses can provide the following wound-care services:

Basic Wound Care—Cleaning wounds and changing wound dressings and administering antibiotic therapy (if prescribed)

Self-Care Training—Education for patients and caregivers on how to change wound dressings, monitor healing, manage pain and recognize potential complications

Cutting-Edge Treatment—State-of-the-art therapies, such as negative pressure wound therapy, which employs suction technology to stimulate tissue growth and heal wounds faster

Digital Photography—Nurses may take digital photos of wounds using a smartphone app that transmits a photo directly into the patient’s medical record for WOCN consultation and can also be emailed to the patient’s doctors
