Wound Care at Pella Regional

Comprehensive, outpatient wound care at Pella Regional promotes healing and improves quality of life.

The goal is not only to heal wounds, but to prevent wound recurrence and help patients on the road to good health. Pella Regional’s experienced, certified wound care nurses can treat any number of wounds.

Treatment Program

Wound care patients undergo a thorough examination to identify the type of wound and the underlying problems causing the wound. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes and other related vascular disorders. Other types include pressure sores and traumatic wounds. A program specifically tailored to the patient's needs will begin based on the most effective treatment options.

Wound care treatment may include:

  • Dressing changes
  • Compression therapy
  • Debridement
  • Pain management
  • Patient and family education

Our specially trained Wound Care nursing staff is certified in wound care, ostomy care, continence care, and wound care debridement to provide you with the best care possible. 

Wound treatmentFollow Up

Once a wound care treatment plan has begun, appointments are scheduled on a regular basis. Patients are instructed on how to administer wound care at home between visits, as well as how to protect wounds from further complications.

Pella Regional's wound care nurses also work with patients who are dealing with ostomy and continence issues.

Ostomy Care

Pella Regional's certified nurses are available for people with ostomies. Nurses work with surgeons to provide education and support before and after surgery. Teaching and practical advice for those who have established ostomies is also available. A yearly visit by physician referral to assess your stoma, review techniques and to offer new treatment options is recommended. Our certified ostomy nurses participate in the local Central Iowa Ostomy Association support group.
