Wound Management (Sub-Acute Care)

Want to Help Seniors?

Please help us grow our network by volunteering for support groups.


NRH’s wound management programs
are designed for patients whose disruptions in the
skin require skilled nursing treatments that cannot
be delivered effectively in the home. Typical
conditions for patients in this program include
decubitus ulcer, post-op wound repair, non-healing
surgical wounds, burns and other results of injury or
illness.

Program Goal

NRH seeks to promote wound
healing while maintaining a patient’s functional
ability or potential.
