Wound Management

Wound Management

Denson’s clinicians are highly trained and experienced in wound management, healing processes, and effective communication with physicians on wound treatment modalities, using evidence-based wound treatment protocols.

Our trained RNs perform a comprehensive evaluation. Then we work with the primary care physician or wound care specialist to create an individualized treatment plan. We address co-morbidities, complications and malnutrition that may hinder the healing process. Denson’s uses a clinical pathway to achieve success, starting with our ability to evaluate the type of wound being treated.
