Sentara Home Care Services’ nurses are experts at implementing comprehensive treatment plans for wound care patients who are unable to care for a complicated wound. They follow principles of effective wound care management under the direction of the physician. Both standard and advanced wound care procedures, products and technologies are used. Sentara Home Care Services employs both Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses (WOCNs) and Certified Wound Care Nurses (CWCNs).
Types of wounds treated include burns, diabetic ulcers, donor/graft sites, infected wounds, pressure ulcers, and surgical and vascular wounds.
We pride ourselves in utilizing the latest technology available, such as telehealth electronic visits for wound care patients who remain at home and require ongoing visits by a home care nurse. Digital cameras are used to document wound characteristics, while computer software assists with monitoring progress of wound healing.
