As Americans continue efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, Beverly Hospital’s Center for Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine staff remains on the front lines, preventing unnecessary amputations and further complications from non-healing wounds. June is Wound Healing Awareness Month (WHAM); a time to recognize the efforts of our superhero wound care staff and remember that wound care is essential and to not delay treatment.
NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES
Typically, we think of superheroes as those with super strength, x-ray vision, or the ability to fly. We see our wound care team as everyday superheroes because they are skilled clinicians with advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine. The center’s staff is able to treat all types of wounds from chronic to non-healing. Their approach to wound care is assertive and comprehensive by coordinating traditional and advanced therapies that aid and accelerate the healing process. For patients, that means faster healing times, longer-lasting results, decreased amputation rates, and increased mobility.
The center treats wounds of all types, including:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Venous ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Surgical wounds
- Traumatic wounds
- Arterial ulcers
- Radiation wounds
- Compromised skin grafts and flaps
- Crush injuries
“When the body is not able to heal a wound on its own, it’s time to seek advanced wound treatment. Proper wound care is critically essential to avoid serious long-term complications such as an amputation. Our advanced wound healing center can provide the specialized treatment options and medical expertise that your body needs to support the process of wound healing.” – Maria Rios, RN and Wound Care Center Program Director
