wound care

  1. Hi everyone. Well it's been almost 2 months since I have started home care. It is great! I decided to switch from case manager to per diem though. I like the freedom of choosing the days I can work. I average about 10 miles a day and see about 5 patients per day.

    We have had tons of snow here in New England, and that has been a challenge to drive through!

    I am looking for web sites or books on wound care. Pictures, decriptive terms etc. Does anyone have anything they can share!?
    Thanks, Paula

    Remember now that all wound supply costs bundled into cost of nursing visits under homecare benefit---use as guide if you are discharging patients before wound healed as some agencies do if pt/cg independent.

    I just started HH...I love it too. Thanks for the info, NrsKaren. We have an ostomy-wound-care RN specialist for HH, but the info is very helpful also.
