Wound care healing in Caldwell, Idaho

Wound care is the medical treatment of severe, chronic and nonhealing wounds. In addition to treating wounds, healthcare professionals in wound care centers monitor wound healing and help prevent infections and other serious complications. Patients learn how to dress and properly care for a wound that refuses to heal, and how to prevent future disease-caused wounds such as diabetic ulcers.
