An unexpected wound can put a real damper on your day. It may come after a fall, an accident at home, or something as simple as a shaving nick. If left unattended, even a tiny wound can become a major problem. At Comfort Health our skilled nursing staff works hard to provide independent Rochester, MN area residents with at-home wound care options that get you back on your feet or into a comfortable routine quickly and seamlessly.
Depending upon the wound in question you may feel perfectly comfortable handling the care on your own. After sustaining wounds either major or minor, however, it’s important to keep an eye out for signs that recovery isn’t going how it should be. Signs of trouble may include unexpected inflammation, wounds that are slow to close or that won’t stop bleeding, discoloration, or significant discomfort around the wound site. Any of these symptoms or other sensations that seem out of place may be best handled by a skilled nursing team with significant wound care experience.
All of our wound care is carefully and regularly administered to ensure a consistent recovery. This may include medication, bandaging, disinfecting, or other steps to help you regain mobility and comfort. Our skilled nursing staff also helps review dietary changes that may aid in recovery and can even consult on environmental changes to support you or your loved one’s needs throughout the entire recovery process. All of our wound care is carefully catered to the individual in question as well as the injury itself.
Our skilled nursing professionals are also trained to help manage chronic wound care for individuals in need. This means providing consistent dressing changes, medication and diet consultations, social support, and anything else that you need in order to thrive every day.
