What is wound care?

Wound care is the medical management of non-healing wounds, also called ulcers. No matter the cause, you should seek medical help for your wound if it fails to start healing within two weeks or hasn’t fully healed after six weeks.

Open wounds increase your risk of infection. If left untreated, they can affect surrounding tissue, leading to the need for more serious medical intervention, such as tissue or limb removal. 

Getting early care for your non-healing wound may prevent more severe health complications. 

Wound care can address many types of wounds, including:

  • Abrasions
  • Lacerations
  • Punctures
  • Avulsions (a partial or complete tearing away of skin and the tissue below) 
  • Incisions 

If you’ve had surgery, you may need at-home wound care to take care of an incision made during your procedure. 

What are the benefits of at-home wound care?

What happens during a wound care evaluation?

During your wound care evaluation, your 24/7 Care At Home provider reviews your medical history and asks detailed questions about your wound or wounds. This helps them understand the cause and any prior treatment.

The team then carefully examines your wound to assess the size, location, and tissue health, and they may take tissue samples to confirm or rule out an infection.
