Case Studies - Surgical Site Infections

Case study:  A very active 43-your-old patient, had undergone surgery after a fracture and was told to leave the wound open to air to heal. After 6 months of not seeing progress and being worried about getting an infection and losing their leg, the patient was recommended our wound care services.

Approach: One of our wound care specialists provided virtual care by assessing the patient and the wound to determine and address factors preventing healing. A care plan was developed in collaboration with the patient and to be implemented by her with our ongoing virtual follow-up and support. Over the period of 4 weeks and 2 days, the desired outcome was achieved from the confort of patient’s home.  Most importantly, our client was happy with our services and able to go back to their active routine.
