It is estimated that over 6.5 million Americans suffer from chronic or hard to heal wounds. Hospital based Wound Care Centers are staffed with specially trained physicians and nurses who work in conjunction with the patient’s primary care physician. Together they work to diagnosis and treat a variety of chronic, or non-healing, wounds. The wounds treated often include arterial ulcers, diabetic and neuropathic ulcers, lower extremity edema (swelling of the feet and/or ankles), pressure injuries or ulcers, problem surgical wounds, animal and insect bites, trauma wounds and venous stasis ulcers.
Shared Health Services, in conjunction with its partner hospitals, offers evidence based wound care which is proven to reduce complications and amputations related to these chronic, non-healing wounds. During a typical visit to a Wound Care Center a patient will undergo a complete assessment, wound measurement and photographs, debridement to aid in the removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue by surgical or other means to improve the healing potential of the remaining healthy tissue, infectious disease management, laboratory and vascular evaluation, advanced wound dressings, compression dressings, prosthetic and pressure relief assistance, negative pressure wound therapy and/or hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
In accepting her new position Ms. Paez stated, “In the ever changing landscape of wound care and hyperbaric medicine in this country, it is critical to be clinically well educated and current. Understanding the trends of the regulatory bodies and payers is an essential part of ensuring our hospital partners will continue to enjoy delivering the highest quality clinical care to their communities without concern for compliance issues or future negative exposure. I am excited to be joining this team of extraordinarily talented people who put patients first and guide providers and clinicians to provide superior care in an atmosphere of trust, integrity and good will."
