A wound is any hole in the skin. It can be caused by a bug bite, cut, burn, surgical incision or pressure wounds such as bed sores.
Many times a wound heals by itself without event. But when a wound is taking longer than normal to heal, we offer a Wound Care Clinic on Fridays to help.
Our Wound Care Team has in-depth training, and they’re certified experts in caring for wounds. They bring the latest in wound care to BCHC patients based on new research and techniques that can speed the healing process.
At the Wound Care Clinic, you will see Dr. Kohl and a nurse from the Wound Care Team. You will also have a chance to meet with our Dietitian Jan Person who can teach you what to eat for faster healing.
There are a number of things that can impact how a wound heals. So, in addition to Dietary, our Wound Care Team will also work closely with Lab, Pharmacy, Radiology, and Occupational Therapy (OT) to offer you well-rounded care.
