When you have a non-healing or slow healing wound, day to day activities are more difficult. If left untreated, these wounds could cause long term, permanent damage. There are many types of wounds; those associated with complications from diabetes and other related vascular disorders; as well as pressure sores and traumatic wounds including burns and chronic swelling in the lower legs.
The Wound Care team at Waldo County General Hospital consists of a certified ostomy and wound care nurse and a podiatrist. Each of whom are specially trained to address the specific needs of wound center patients.
