WOUND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

The wound management program provides a holistic approach to wound management and ensures continuity of care in collaboration with the interdisciplinary team. This program provides direction to practitioners’ through evidence-based practice when managing and/or preventing wounds which promotes the optimal level of resident function, comfort, and quality of life.

A new Wound Care Workflow was developed for our Care Aides which provides them with tools such as a new skin integrity check guide in each room and shower, introduction of new skin products, a standard of work guide for skin care products, and a new documentation process for each shift.

Our care staff have completed in-depth Physical Assessment Workshops to enhance their assessment skills with focus on early identification, timely intervention and better documentation/ communication amongst the nurses and other health care professionals.
