Many wound care patients are elderly, overweight or even obese. Besides having a skin ulcer caused by diabetes, venous stasis, arterial insufficiency or persistent pressure these patients often have unrecognized signs and symptoms of malnutrition. Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions Inc. teaches wound care providers how to spot, assess and treat this common cause for non-healing. During our wound care symposium we teach providers the importance of following nationally endorsed Clinical Practice Guidelines, completing a nutrition assessment, obtaining laboratory tests and counseling each wound care patient on the importance of balanced meals with more veggies and fruits and less processed foods from the middle of the grocery aisles. Adequate protein intake is vital to healing a complex wound as protein is an important factor in repairing the skin. When Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions, Inc. teaches providers and staff of outpatient wound clinics we provide them all the tools to be truly comprehensive in their approach. For more information about Comprehensive’s services please call Karin at 1-800-232-5070.
We know from our database that at least 90% of all new admits to an outpatient wound center come from a referral by a Physician. That data then begs the question: “How do you stay in front of Physicians and remind them of the services provided by their local wound and hyperbaric program?”
Today’s Wound Clinic (TWC) interviewed Karin Roemers-Kleven, RN, CWS, FACCWS, President/CEO Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions, Inc. back in 2010. Karin discussed the role of the company as a leader in the area of technology-based products or services for the wound care clinic setting.
This week our wound care patients will most likely enjoy a special feast on Thanksgiving Day. There are many foods served on the traditional menu for this holiday which are rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids known to enhance wound healing.
A big thank you to all of Comprehensive Healthcare’s employees, clients, families and friends who have served and went to war to fight for our freedom! Your dedication, the compromises you made, your courage is just amazing!
The Symposium for Advanced Wound Care by HMP is the largest wound care conference nationwide. Every year we send staff to that meeting to network and keep up to date. The fall meeting will be in Las Vegas, NV. Today’s Wound Clinic ( a publication of HMP) will be distributed for free during the Fall SAWC. Our one page ad will be featured in this month’s publication!
