SABETHA COMMUNITY HOSPITAL OPENS WOUND CARE CLINIC

Beginning November 2, 2020, a wound care clinic will be offered at Sabetha Community Hospital. The wound clinic is a specialized outpatient treatment center dedicated to the care of patients with wounds. The wound clinic will be staffed by Susie Lueger, APRN and Kristie Hartig, RN.

Wounds that are hard-to-heal and/or non-healing may be a result of pressure, trauma or infection. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn in to a significant problem due to underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment. Since non-healing wounds rarely result from a single cause, the wound care team will assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing.

Treatment plans are designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that is right for you. Advance wound care may include: Diagnostic testing, nutritional evaluation, infection control, specialized dressings, pressure-relieving devices, debridement and patient education.

If you are experiencing any of the following--slow-to-heal or non-healing wounds, foot or leg ulcers or wounds, non-healing surgical wounds, non-healing skin grafts or surgical flaps, symptoms occurring on or around a point of radiation, bone infection or crush injuries--you could benefit from advanced wound care.

Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and many adversely affect your quality of life. If you have a wound or ulcer that is not healing, or any wound that is of concern, ask your physician for a referral to the Wound Center or call them directly at (785) 284-1588 for an appointment.
