Wound Care Committee

The Wound Care Committee is comprised of staff nurses from various nursing units at Aria Health, who guide practice and promote a consistent and cohesive approach to wound care, as well as pressure ulcer prevention, using evidence-based practice.  The staff nurses have developed, in conjunction with information management, a systematic computerized wound care flow sheet to assist in accurate and consistent skin assessment and documentation.  The staff developed and implemented standard protocols, supported by national guidelines, which are employed by the professional nurse to treat the various stages of wound development and pressure ulcer prevention.
