Aspirus Stanley Hospital Celebrates Opening of Wound Center with Ribbon Cutting

Leaders and staff at Aspirus Stanley Hospital celebrated the opening of their Wound Care Center on Tuesday, December 13, by participating in a ribbon cutting ceremony with members of the Stanley Area Chamber of Commerce. 
Aspirus Stanley Hospital  offers specialized wound care services that can promote healing and prevent infection and re-occurrence. 
“We are excited to celebrate the launch of this service with our community,” said Debbie Harris, RN, Director of Nursing at Aspirus Stanley Hospital.  “People living with wounds that have not healed with traditional methods of treatment may benefit from a visit to our wound care center.”
Often when people get a cut or a scrape, they don’t think too much about it.  Proper care can ensure most wounds, such as minor cuts and scrapes, heal within a few days and can be handled at home. However, more serious wounds may require a trip to your primary care physician who will refer you to a wound care program.
“Depending on the type of wound and where it is located, different treatments or techniques may be used to help, the body heal such as plans for lifetime compression therapy, complete wound assessment, and education,” said Alissa Broughton, RN, surgical services, and specialty clinic supervisor at Aspirus Stanley Hospital.
Wounds that need specialized services to promote healing often are those related to:
Minor burns
Arterial insufficiency
Radiation treatment
Complex surgical wounds
Aspirus Stanley Hospital offers Wound Care services from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.
