Advanced Healing makes scheduled weekly visits to each participating nursing home for treating new and established wound patients. The weekly visit is meant to supplement, not replace, the daily wound care provided by the nursing home. Measurements, bedside debridement (if necessary), and product usage education is included. This potentially eliminates the need for costly transportation to wound care centers or re-hospitalization.
Following each visit, Advanced Healing will provide the nursing home with written follow-up care recommendations for each wound for the coming week. Whenever possible, these recommendations will take into consideration the dressings and supplies available in the nursing home’s formulary. Collaboration with other disciplines is clearly documented to provide a holistic approach to healing that shines from a Nurse Practitioner. All preventative residents are able to be followed on wound rounds. This unique feature recognizes the need for early intervention.
Advanced Healing handles all patient registration and billing for services rendered. The nursing home is not billed for services provided to its residents! This service does not diminish your Med A payments.
Our providers are Tissue Viabillity experts and licensed Nurse Practitioners. They live near where they work and take a personal interest in the outcomes. Following discharge from long term care, they are available to see the resident as needed on a house call basis. This continuity of care is unique to our practice. Our current facilities utilize this feature in their recruitment of residents.
Advanced Healing takes pain seriously. All wound care and debridements will coincide with a comprehensive pain control policy. There are no unnecessary and persistent debridements that serve only to increase billing. We are conservative and debride only when necessary.
In addition, Advanced Healing can provide education to your staff on wound topics such as documentation, F314, assessment and measuring, and wound identification. These sessions are personally tailored to the specific educational needs of the facility and are an added bonus to the weekly services provided.
