Each patient with a complex wound will undergo a 90-minute comprehensive assessment, including measurement of their wound and examination of the skin surrounding the wound. The assessment will take place in a consulting room at the Wound Clinic. Your patients' wound will be photographed and measured, with their permission, to monitor wound healing progress. A relative or carer can be present if required.
During the first assessment, the nurse will note down any past medical history and will discuss the history of the wound with your patient, along with what care you have previously given them. A Care Plan will then be agreed between the patient and the nurse. Healing the wound cannot be guaranteed, but the nurse will set a realistic goal, and will work towards achieving that goal.
It is advisable for patients to wear loose-fitting clothing around the area where the wound is located (for example, leg or arm). The patient may be required to wear bandages; please advise them to wear suitable footwear if this is necessary.
Your patient's wound will be assessed at each appointment to monitor progress.
We collect regular feedback from the patients.
