Wound Care at Providence Healthcare

Providence Healthcare has up-to-date wound assessment and treatment protocols to ensure they’re following best practices, regularly conducting wound care rounds to check in on high-risk residents, and making sure those who need them have access to therapeutic, pressure-relieving mattresses, which they recently received more of thanks to a generous grant from Women in Philanthropy for Providence.
