Customized Wound Care Treatment Plan
During your first appointment, the Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care Center staff will perform a wound assessment, assess your general health, review your medical history and order blood tests if necessary. Using all this information they will create a personalized wound care treatment plan specific to your healing needs. Plan to spend several hours for this first assessment appointment.
Your customized program will include regular visits to the Wound Care Center for treatment, evaluation and updates to your plan. You (or your care-giver) will be given detailed instructions in home care, nutrition, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.
