Wound Management

The Nurses at First In Caring have designed Wound Management services to provide comprehensive and attentive care to individuals dealing with various types of wounds, ensuring their comfort, promoting healing, and preventing complications.

At First In Caring. we prioritise infection control measures, aiming to reduce the risk of complications and promote a sterile environment for optimal healing. Additionally, we educate clients and their faimilies on wound care best practices, empowering them to participate in the healing process and take preventative measures.


Essential services

  • Assessment: Our Nurses conduct thorough assessments of wounds to determine their type, serverity and underlying causes. This assessment helps formulate recovery plans.
  • Wound Cleansing: Proper wound cleansing is vital to prevent infections and promote healing. Our skilled nurses use appropriate techniques and solutions to clean wounds.
  • Dressing and Bandaging: Selecting the right wound dressing is essential for optimal wound healing. We use a range of specialised dressings tailored to the type of wound and its stage of healing. These dressings maintain a moist environment, protect against infection, and promote tissue regeneration.
  • Infection Control:  Nurses are trained in identifying signs of infection and implementing timely interventions to control and treat infections.
  • Pressure Ulcer Prevention: For clients at risk of pressure ulcers (bedsores), we prioritise prevention measures, such as regular repositioning, proper cushioning, and skincare, to reduce the likelihood of these painful and potentially serious wounds.
  • Chronic Wound Care: Some clients may have chronic wounds that require long-term management. A multidisciplinary approach may be required to effectively treat the case.
  • Monitoring and follow-ups: Our team closely monitors the progress of the wound healing and conducts regular follow-up assessments. If needed, we make adjustments to the care plan to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Not just physical

Physical aspects are not the only focus when it comes to Wound Management. Dealing with wounds can be distressing, especially for those who may be experiencing chronic pain or facing challenges in their daily activities.  Our approach aims to alleviate anxiety and provide emotional support during the healing process.
