Starting in 2014, LVHN’s TeleWound program began to operate under the leadership of the LVHN Regional Burn Center. This program utilizes the same technologies as TeleBurn.
TeleWound allows wound ostomy continence nurse specialists (WOCN) to quickly view wounds and implement appropriate care planning in a timely manner (within 24 hours) leading to improved patient outcomes.
- The TeleWound service provides recommendations for treatment of complex wounds through formal consultations with nursing homes.
- A pilot program is currently underway with LVHN’s transitional skilled unit.
