Wound Care and Stoma Care
Many patients and families feel overwhelmed with their hospital Discharge instructions regarding correct techniques for carrying out correct wound care.
At Nightingale Home Nursing, we can assist you or a loved one to promote wound recovery, prevent complications and give you nutritional counselling using an individualized evidence-based wound care plan.
We can also communicate and collaborate with your treating physician regarding patients progress towards healing as well as treatment options.
Catheter Care and Management
Clinical care at home includes catheter care. Catheterization is conducted in the hospital to relieve acute or chronic urinary retention, to drain urine per-operative, to determine the amount of residual urine after voiding, or to determine accurate measurement of urinary drainage in critically ill patients.
Many patients and family feel overwhelmed when discharged home with a catheter in place.
