Bristol, PA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Gentell, Inc. http://www.gentell.com, a leading manufacturer of wound and skin care products, has announced the release of the Gentell Wound Advisor, a concise guide to wound treatment. Previously available for $9.99 from Amazon.com, this resource is now available as a free download at http://www.gentell.com. A printed copy of the guide is also available and ships free of charge to qualified professionals.
Gentell Executive Vice President David Navazio notes that, “We are also making the Wound Advisor book available free of charge to nurses and administrators who would like a reference copy. We receive calls almost every day from distributors, nurses, and other customers who are confused and frustrated by the overabundance of advanced wound care products. The Gentell Wound Advisor helps our customers understand how wound care products are best applied to heal wounds more quickly.”
The Wound Advisor includes the Gentell Wound Algorithm, a chart that summarizes the steps for treating most wounds and identifies the primary and secondary dressings appropriate for different levels of wound drainage. The Wound Advisor also includes an explanation of the Wound Algorithm, a discussion of split drain dressings for traches and tubes, information about treating infected wounds, a brief history of wound management, six steps to healthier skin, and the 2012 HCPCS Medicare billing codes for wound care products. A reference section includes specification sheets for Gentell’s popular wound care products and their Material Safety Data Sheets on facing pages.
“Wound care has become so complex,” says Glenn Paul, VP, Marketing, “that we are providing one convenient document where people can learn how to treat wounds with Gentell products. In a business of bottles and dressings, we’re wrapping expertise around the products by offering reference information like the Wound Advisor and our wireless wound reporting system, Fastcare 2.0. This expertise extends even to our new packaging, which is color-coded for easier selection, more informative and includes updated instructions.”
The Gentell Wound Advisor can also be downloaded on most tablet computers – including the Gentell Fastcare tablet – to be read as an electronic book. Readers can download or purchase the Wound Advisor by clicking on the book on Gentell’s home page (http://www.gentell.com) or on this link: http://www.gentell.com/gentell-wound-advisor/. A free (including shipping) Wound Advisor reference book is also available to nurses and administrators who order at http://www.gentellfastcare.com and use the Purchase Order # Advisor2012.
“The Wound Advisor and our electronic offerings are not meant to replace on-site education altogether,” notes David Navazio. “In fact, we work with many nurses who provide product training to long-term care facilities. However, the Wound Advisor is an excellent reference tool that we will update every year as wound treatments and Gentell products continue to advance.”
Gentell wound and skin care products help heal and prevent wounds in nursing homes, hospitals, wound care centers and, through home health care providers, in patients’ homes. Gentell customers share three common problems: 1. Lingering, undocumented outcomes, 2. Confusion caused by the thousands of wound care products being offered and the plethora of new technologies, and 3. Increased costs as Medicare benefits are cut, corporations reduce staff and health care organizations look to reduce costs while improving or maintaining their level of patient care. The Gentell Wound Advisor, Gentell Fastcare Wound Documentation System, and other Gentell products and services help solve these problems by providing electronic documentation, quick access to information and reduced costs. The best way to heal a wound is to address it quickly and to pay attention to it. Gentell’s tagline is, “We make it better.” We heal wounds, and we make better wound-healing products.
