Apple Rehab Watch Hill increases its quality of care with nurses’ CPI certification for wound care and implementation of the Big & Loud Program to better assist patients with Parkinson’s Disease.

Nurses at Apple Rehab Watch Hill, a nursing and rehabilitation facility nestled on five acres at picturesque Babcock Cove, recently received training and certification in Closed Pulse Irrigation™ (CPI) for wound care. This qualifies Apple Rehab Watch Hill, which has a prestigious five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to have a CPI machine that will provide better quality wound care. CPI can increase healing up to 50% faster for complex wounds.

CPI is an innovative and safe pulse irrigation system used to treat chronic non-healing wounds, utilizing the protection of a totally contained wound irrigation bag. CPI virtually eliminates the danger of bacterial cross-contamination and spread of drug-resistant infections. It also simplifies care for patients with difficult wounds and removes 85% of bacteria, biofilms and debris with each treatment.

“From day one nursing has been very attentive and respectful of my needs,” said extended short-term rehab patient Amy R. “I feel that the nurses are well-qualified and kept me well-informed. Communication between staff and other departments is very good. Everyone gave me the confidence that my care was consistent towards my goal of a recovery within a reasonable time frame.”

To further enhance patient care, Apple Rehab is excited to add The Big & Loud program to their list of services. It is offered to short-term patients, but more importantly is offered to long-term patients with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological conditions (MS, stroke, etc.) four days a week for a month. The Big & Loud program focuses on limb and body movement in people with Parkinson’s, increasing amplitude. Big & Loud changes the approach to big steps, over-exaggerating movements, and projecting one’s voice.
