Outpatient Wound Care

What are the advantages of outpatient wound care? PLENTY!

Most people wouldn’t want to be caught dead during a hospital and permanently reason. That’s where all the really bad germs hang around. You know, the antibiotic-resistant germs. those they can’t extinguish with an easy shot of anything.

They’re called “nosocomial infections” and you get exposed to them just by getting treated during a hospital setting. So if you’ve got a choice on where to urge your wound care, it’s an honest idea to urge treated as distant from the hospital as you’ll, preferably in an outpatient setting where there are naturally less antibiotic-resistant germs and fewer carriers of these germs.

In an outpatient wound care facility, we use very small 23-gauge butterfly needles to access veins. The needles are so thin that they often cause no pain in the least. Hospitals wish to use wider gauge needles like 18-gauge and 21-gauge. Hospitals also are more likely to put in a “port,” which may be a semi-permanent tube embedded into the body. The thinking is you won’t need to be re-stuck a day, which it’s easier to urge your IV that way. the matter may be a port is simply an open tunnel where bacteria can breed that leads directly into the vein. So persist with the outpatient wound care center, no pun intended.
If you’ve ever spent a few days within the hospital, you recognize what “continuity of care” isn’t. It’s the night shift not understanding what happened with you on the day shift. Different days, different nurses, different doctors, different skill levels…

In an outpatient center, you see an equivalent face a day, and that they get to understand you. Your goals, your preferences…they know which veins are good and which veins they ought to avoid. Sorry, you only can’t get those sorts of provider/patient relationships during a big hospital. They don’t have the time and therefore the provider-to-patient ratio is consistently shrinking.
