The USC Verdugo Hills Hospital Wound Care program has been providing superior outpatient wound center management for a decade with a current average healing rate of 35 days. In 2014 a partnership was formed between USC and Wound Care Advantage to provide in-patient wound care. This month the WCA clinical team was recognized for a drop in the rate of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers from 14 percent to 2 percent.
Wound healing is a complex undertaking that can frighten patients and caregivers who are just learning about it.
“When patients first come into our wound center they are typically going through a range of emotions,” said Christina Le, director of clinical operations at Wound Care Advantage. “Our team has been trained by our management company Wound Care Advantage, to always put patient care first. This means educating our patients, families and caregivers and taking the fear out of non-healing wounds. By doing this in all of our wound centers across the country we help create wound care awareness on a national level.”
Last year the wound center conducted a patient survey. Of those who participated in the survey, 100 percent of patients said they would return and 100 percent of patients said they would recommend to a friend or family member.
“Last year this wound center was able to fully heal 92 percent of all non-healing wounds in their care. We are so proud of our clinical team and partners at USC,” Karen Redmond, Senior VP at Wound Care Advantage said. “This team is a great example of how a wound care program can be taken to superior levels with the right partnership approach.
