Desert Blossom Health and Rehabilitation specializes in wound care for our residents. Our specially trained staff will determine the stage of each wound and provide proper medical attention based on each individual case.

We understand that proper wound care is dependent upon the treatments we provide which are why we utilize the following treatments on an individualized basis:

  • Antibiotic treatments
  • Specialized bandage care
  • Skin grafts
  • Wound vacuums
  • Compression therapy
  • Oxygen therapy

Once the proper care is provided, each resident will be monitored at regular intervals to ensure that the wound has begun to heal. In addition, residents that are immobilized will be moved at least every two hours and will have access to the necessary bedding and devices to ensure that pressure on the wounds is minimized.

Dr. Patel is a wound care specialist that heads up our wound care program. He along with wound care nurses are able to heal complicated wounds. Our team is determined to successfully heal those suffering from wounds and will also ensure that preventative steps are taken for future incidents.
