NRH's wound management programs are designed for patients whose disruptions in the skin require skilled nursing treatments that cannot be delivered effectively in the home. Typical conditions for patients in this program include decubitus ulcer, post-op wound repair, non-healing surgical wounds, burns and other results of injury or illness.

Program Goal

NRH seeks to promote wound healing while maintaining a patient's functional ability or potential.
