WOUND, OSTOMY
CONTINENCE
NURSES EXPAND
THEIR INFLUENCE
The Wound, Ostomy Continence Nurses
have expanded their consulting services
to include the Hillsborough Campus. They
have collaborated with the plastic surgery
physicians successfully to restructure
the management of chronic wound care
patients. This partnership enabled the
WOCN's to provide conservative sharp
debridement with the plastic surgery
residents. A certified foot care nurse
has also been added to the WOCN team
to provide advanced nail care. Other
advances in WOCN services have provided
staff with additional resources to better
assess and manage skin wounds.
