A Day in the Life of the Wound Center at GBMC
Healing can be influenced by many factors, including circulation issues, infections, vascular diseases, diabetes, and swelling. Primary care doctors may not be as aware of the newest ways to treat wounds, but the staff at the Wound Center at GBMC is encouraged to take classes to keep up with the latest evidence-based practices. “Physicians, nurses, and case managers are always learning and finding new ways to improve,” says Tiffany Hall, RN, BSN.
Patients are seen on a weekly basis so staff can assess the wound, order testing, or change treatments as needed. Weekly appointments also allow patients and caregivers to build a relationship based on trust. “We have a great group of nurses here. They are really passionate about what they do,” says Dana Maniuszko, BSN, RN, ONC.
