I'm wondering where to find wound care education in GA, or the surrounding states.
I work at a less than stellar long-term facility, that has just switched from having wound care nurses, to having each floor nurse do their own tx. The problem is, I've noticed an increase in # and severity of wounds, and some strange, innapropriate dressings, such as a regular gauze on large wound with a large amount of discharge to be changed q3d- resulting in a stinking, soggy dressing that's just hanging on by the corner.
At any rate, although I cannot become certified due to being an LPN, I'm desperately searching for a quality class for wound, ostomy, and incont care in the area. I live in ATL, I'm willing to travel quite a ways, depending on the length of classes, and I'm also willing to pay out of pocket.
I've asked the mgmnt here, and they keep refering me to a short online course they have, and I'm wanting something more in-depth
Any solutions from anyone out there?
