Frequently Asked Questions about Wound Care
Q: What will happen during my wound evaluation?
Your wounds will be cleaned, examined and measured. After seeing the physician, you will be provided with information on how to care for your wounds. If your wound is located on your lower extremities, your feet will be tested to see how much feeling you have and if your blood flow is healthy.
Q: What do I need to bring to my appointment?
Bring your insurance card, a list of medications, and a valid ID.
Q: What about follow-up visits?
You will be seen on a regular basis, and each time, your wounds will be re-examined for progression towards healing. If tests have been ordered by your doctor, the doctor will review results and answer any additional questions.
Q: What are Chronic Wounds?
A chronic wound is a wound that fails to heal within a month. These wounds prevent the skin from performing normal functions of protecting you against infection and holding nutrients within your body. Often these wounds are complicated by one or more chronic illness such as diabetes and atherosclerosis (poor blood flow). Such wounds can affect the whole body and lead to serious infections in the bone and sometimes of the blood.
