Madonna's Wound Program serves patients with slow-healing or non-healing wounds who often have complex medical conditions. Our holistic approach focuses on prevention, intervention and long-term management of wounds while providing rehabilitation to help patients achieve the highest level of independence possible.
Patients are seen regularly by a physician who evaluates the wound and adjusts the treatment plan as necessary. A physician who specializes in wound care rounds twice per week on patients throughout the facility and provides recommendations for continuing care.
Rehabilitation nursing staff are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
The program is led by a certified Wound, Ostomy and Continence nurse and supported by nurses and therapists with extra wound care training.
