    packing wound not healing. Advise?

    Hi Prettynurse, Can you tell us a bit more about this patient? What type of wound is it? Was it post-op? Is it possible it is a fistula? What condition is the patient in? Good health? Diabetic? Anemic? Age? Thin? Overweight? Active? Who is physician ordering care? How long has this patient had the wound? And please describe it: where it is, type, what the tissue looks like, smell, exudate type and amount, depth of wound, associated pain, what does periwound area look like? Has it been cultured for infection. All of these factor in when choosing a dressing. Hang in there!
