Our agency is lead by a Board Certified Wound Care from the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing (WOCN). Studies have shown that patients who were cared by a WOC nurses had better outcomes in terms of healing rates compared to patients cared for by other nurses.
As CMS transitions to value-based purchasing, the value of WOC nursing is easily identified as facilities and agencies implement best practices to prevent pressure ulcers and catheter-associated urinary tract infections. The emphasis on preventive care is mandated across all care settings. WOC nurses are experts in providing the comprehensive prevention measures and care planning necessary to reduce the frequency of these conditions.
Caring for patients with chronic wounds are an increasing problem and the increased focus on pressure ulcers has attracted attention. They often have comorbidities and chronic conditions that can lead to frequent hospitalizations. Choosing a Home Healthcare provider that focuses on prevention and management produce better patient outcomes, reduce costs and increased patient satisfaction.
Over 90% of our patients rated our agency as the “best home health care possible”. This means that our patients will be delighted with the care they receive from Care for Life Home Health, Inc., an important consideration as we move to Patient-Centered Care.
