Project Description

WOUND CARE AT HOME

Accurate and consistent identification of wounds, and differentiation of wound type, is critical to care and healing. Fakeeh Home Healthcare invests in training our nurses to properly obtain adequate data from referral documents or through a comprehensive history and physical assessment on the initial visit(s) provides a starting point for wound care planning.

Based on the assessment, the wound care nurse specialist validates the proposed plan of care and adapts and modifies it as needed, based on knowledge of wound types and care products, and in collaboration with the healthcare team.However, FHH believes that the plan’s success depends most on educating the patient and caregiver to facilitate independent care, therefore, we encourage the patient and/or the family members to be involved in the process.
