Wound Care & Lymphedema Treatment
SSM Health at Home has a number of Wound Care Certified Nurses on Staff who consult on new and current patients with wounds and help to develop a plan of care with the rest of the care team as well as the patient’s physician to help the wound heal faster. If a patient presents with a complex wound, the Wound Care Certified Nurse will also be the patient’s case manager.
SSM Health at Home uses state-of-the-art software to assist with wound care management and more efficient treatment plan changes. We also have a Wound, Ostomy, and Incontinence Certifed Nurse that oversees the entire wound care program and advises on all wound care and ostomy patients.
We also have lymphedema trained therapists who specialize in the treatment of patients who have the complication of swelling in their extremities.
