At Eastbrook Healthcare Center, we take the time to understand the full scope of our patient’s needs. We will inquire about each patient’s current health status to assist us in implementing an appropriate wound care plan. We will inquire about patient health as related to mobility, age, nutrition, continence and disease which all play an important role in how each patient’s wounds will heal. It is important that our specialized wound care team have the right skilled staff in place to treat the complexity of a patient’s needs and utilize high-quality products to help promote wound healing.
