A House Call M.D.’s Certified Wound Care facility is a SNF or ALF that has become certified in identifying skin deterioration and wounds. We will provide in-services, continuing education, skin assessments, resident education and all the necessary tools to help staff members identify and treat different stages of these conditions.
Your certified facility will have the expertise of House Call M.D.’s providing physician oversight to manage any dermatology or wound care condition. Your staff will not be considered experts in wounds, but they will have an advanced understanding in identifying and treating dermatologic conditions and wound care. Facilities and staff will have direct access to our providers, support staff and EMR. We can handle all dermatologic and wound conditions!
Becoming a certified wound care facility increases the reputation and trust of your community. This gives you a competitive edge over other facilities. In addition, the biggest benefits of becoming a certified wound care facility is that your facility will avoid costly tags, fines and potential loss of income associated with state and federal regulations.
Pressure ulcers (also known as pressure sores or bedsores) are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue, primarily caused by prolonged pressure on the skin. They can happen to anyone, but usually affect people confined to bed or who sit in a chair or wheelchair for extended periods of time. This remains a major health problem affecting approximately 3 million adults.
