      Inpatient Wound Care


      Wound care begins upon admission. Proper coordination of patient care across the continuum begins with this philosophy, and it leads to better outcomes. OIS is renowned for our wound care expertise in outpatient clinics, but comprehensive wound care should begin on the inpatient floors. OIS empowers hospital partners to more reliably detect wounds present on admission and to also prevent wounds such as pressure

      Our industry experts will work with hospital staff to develop protocols, train clinicians, and improve coordination across hospital departments (inpatient and outpatient) to deliver the best possible patient care.

      Healthcare Alignment

      No hospital should have to choose between delivering exceptional patient care and a healthy bottom line. Our inpatient wound program delivers great patient outcomes and financial benefits through early detection and intervention, and by having preventative procedures in place. This alignment results in:

      • Decreased cost of care
      • Reduced length of stay
      • Decreased readmission rates
      • Increased revenues

      Innovation in Coordinated Care

      Wound care does not stop once a patient is discharged from the hospital. OIS puts procedures in place and trains staff to ensure that it doesn’t. Whether the patient is discharged to a SNF, to home health, or to the outpatient wound center, our program ensures that treatment continues. This expanded approach heals chronic wounds and allows patients to live their best lives.

      Clinical Benefits

      A coordinated approach to wound care engages all hospital departments and begins with inpatient admission. A successful inpatient wound program encompasses improved detection, evaluation, diagnosis, intervention, and prevention of patient wounds. Pressure ulcer management is an essential part of this program. Critical components include:

      • Policies, procedures,  and protocols
      • Staff training
      • Increased detection of present upon admission
      • Clinical coordinator (WOCN)
      • Medical director
      • Multi-disciplinary clinical consultation
