Wound Care

Treatment for Non-Healing Wounds

Having a wound that won’t heal is stressful. You worry about infection and complications. You need professionals who specialize in helping wounds heal.

Our home wound care nurses monitor and assess wounds in collaboration with your health care provider to offer treatment options for optimal healing.

Our home wound care services include:

  • Complex to simple wounds
  • Gastronomy tubes and other devices
  • VAC (vacuum assisted closure) dressing changes
  • Non-healing ulcers
  • Post-surgical patients

Wound Care Education and Support

  • Our nurses educate the patient and caregiver until they feel confident in performing the wound care treatments alone.
  • Nurses also provide education regarding infection control, signs and symptoms of infection and when to contact your physician.
  • Photos of the wound are taken often to assess healing and track improvements.
  • Our nurses will communicate with the patient’s providers if there are any concerns and will provide guidance with new interventions or medication orders.
  • Nurse visits can continue even after the patient feels comfortable performing the wound treatments to ensure proper healing.

VAC Wound Care

Our nurses are specially trained in VAC dressings changes and oversee the patient’s care.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
