St. Elias Specialty Hospital Wound Care Program and St. Elias Wound Care Team
The Wound Care Team at St. Elias Specialty Hospital specializes in a variety of wound conditions including ostomies, wound dehiscence, diabetic ulcers, pressure or decubitus ulcers, burns and surgical wounds both pre and post operative. Patients admitted for wound care may have other existing conditions such as cardiac, pulmonary, neuromuscular and renal diseases. Those who are diabetic may be particularly prone to wounds, may have improper healing, may be more at risk for infection and may even have had an amputation. Aging, malnutrition, immobility and peripheral vascular disease can also play a role in improper wound healing.
Our Wound Care team includes specialized certified wound care nurses.
