What is wound care?
Wound care is the process of caring for and treating wounds to promote healing and prevent infection. Proper wound care is important to minimize complications and facilitate the healing process.

Whether you are dealing with a minor cut or a complex surgical wound, we are equipped to give patients the best possible outcomes.
Here are some general guidelines for wound care:
Clean the wound- Start by washing your hands with soap and water to prevent introducing any additional bacteria to the wound. Gently clean the wound with mild soap and running water, removing any dirt or debris. Avoid using hydrogen peroxide or alcohol as they can be damaging to healthy tissue.
Change dressings regularly- It is important to keep the wound clean and dry, so if the bandage becomes dirty or wet, it should be changed.
Apply an appropriate dressing- These can include non-adherent dressings, hydrogel dressings, foam dressings, or antimicrobial dressings. The choice of dressing depends on factors such as the amount of drainage, wound depth, and presence of infection.
