Hometown Treats Both the Wound and the Patient
Holistic care is our focus when we treat a patient with a wound. We help the patient and teach the caregiver as a whole. From the Hometown Home Health perspective, truly successfulwound care includes the avoidance of emergent care and infections during the home health episode and the avoidance of re-injury in the future. Hometown invests heavily in supplies and equipment to prevent infections and more aggressively manage existing infections. Hometown utilizes the expertise of Wound Certified Nurses to assess,develop, and implement a wound care protocol specific to the patient and his or her wounds. OT, PT, MSWand dietitians are available to modify the home environment and train patients and caregivers to avoid similar problems in the future. Hometown evaluates rehabilitation potential for wound care cases; even modest improvements in physical ability can promote wound healing and prevent future problems.
