June is Wound Health Awareness Month
Specialized wound care matters!
No, we are not talking about the average cuts and scraps that a simple bandaid or small bandage would apply to. (ok, pun intended)
We are talking about the vital role specialized wound care plays a part in with individuals who face complications with healing wounds with underlying illnesses or other health conditions.
Nearly 7 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers and pressure injuries. Early evaluation and treatment help avoid serious complications, including sepsis or even amputation.
Talk to your loved ones and make sure you have the proper wound care lined up.
