Saad Nurses Receive Wound Care Certification

We are proud to announce that eleven Saad Healthcare nurses have recently completed specialized training in wound care and have been granted certification by the National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy (NAWCO), one of the major national multidisciplinary wound care certification boards. All eleven have obtained NAWCO’s “Wound Care Certified” (WCC) designation.

In addition, one of our wound care nurses holds the WOCN certification from the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB). This certification is available only to registered nurses who hold a bachelor’s degree and who have 1500 clinical experience hours in wound care over the past five years.

We congratulate all of these hardworking nurses on the successful completion of the certification examinations and on obtaining the expertise in this content area of care.

The Wound Care Program at Saad Healthcare offers a comprehensive approach to caring for patients with acute and chronic wounds. Using the most advanced and effective wound care products and therapies, our experienced team of wound care clinicians develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient using research-based protocols, always with the goal of reducing healing time, enhancing patient comfort, and restoring quality of life.

Wounds that fail to heal correctly, or wounds that heal too slowly, can be caused by a number of medical conditions.  Examples of wounds that we can treat include:

  • Diabetic Wounds
  • Problematic Surgical Wounds
  • Arterial Wounds
  • Radiation Necrosis
  • Venous Stasis Ulcers
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Traumatic Wounds
  • Soft Tissue Infections
  • Compromised Skin Grafts and Flaps
  • Gangrene
  • Complex Soft Tissue Wounds
  • Collagen Vascular Wounds
  • Osteoradionecrosis

A team approach is used for complex cases, integrating specialized skills and insights from a variety of disciplines. Our wound care nurses have advanced wound care training and certification and are able to deliver a comprehensive range of services to our patients. Treatment is provided in the setting best suited to promote a positive outcome, whether in the home, retirement residence, or hospital.
