Wound nurse : a interesting and crucial specialty
Too often bed bond elderly patients or diabetic patients develop wounds that worsen into complicated problematic wounds. When this happens one should call for help immediately and engage a wound specialist right away.
If most nurses are trained to take care of wounds, only a handful of them are especially qualified and have the experience to care for degenerative wounds or infected wounds. Any wounds taking too long close (chronic wounds) or large wounds should be seen by one of these specialists even though it is just a few time. They will be able to guide the patient and the family on the step to follow.
Even though the cost of a wound specialist nurse is greater than a conventional nurse, it is far more beneficial for the patient to speed up the recovery and apply the latest cutting techniques while dressing the wound. Adequate products and bandages at certain stage of the wound are key to obtain good results and fast closure.
You may think it is an investment but it is money that is well spent as it might save a lot of money later. The wound will heal faster and will no longer deteriorate, as complications of degenerative wound are nasty, leading sometimes to imputation or unnecessary pain for the patient.
