Wound Care:

Our Program and Wound Care Approach / Clinical Competencies

Qsm’s comprehensive, aggressive wound care techniques, combined with our multi-disciplined approach, promotes the fastest healing rates using the most cost-effective wound treatment modalities

Debridement of necrotic tissue (devitalized tissue), with careful sparing of healthy tissue, has been well documented to promote wound healing by reducing sources of infection and stimulating growth factors to speed healing.

Our qualified professionals treat wounds by examining underlying infections, metabolic, nutritional, and vascular problems that may inhibit wound healing. Using our services will result in measurable changes in wound drainage, inflammation, swelling, pain, wound dimensions (diameter, depth, tunneling), granulation tissue, and necrotic tissue.

Types of wounds treated: Pressure, Arterial, Venous, Surgical, Trauma, Diabetic Ulcer, CAD-PVD, Vasculitis, Peristomal Skin Irritations, Lymphedema and Other Chronic, Non-healing wounds ...Anywhere on the body.

THE PRESSURE ULCER

Stage 1

Non-blanchable erytherma of intact skin, the heralding lesion of skin ulceration. In individuals with darker skin, discoloration of the skin, warmth, edema, indurations or hardness may also be indicators.

Standard Treatment Protocols:

  • Gently cleanse site, rinse and pat dry. If skin is dry, apply a moisturizing lotion.
  • If skin does not appear dry and you are unable to relieve all sources of pressure, friction or moisture, apply Skin Prep to the discolored area and let dry.
  • Hydrocolloid or Transparent Film Dressings can also be used to protect the wound from further injury.
  • Take active measures to reduce or eliminate pressure at the wound site.


  • Stage 2

    Partial thickness skin loss involving epidermis, dermis, or both. The ulcer is superficial and presents clinically as an abrasion, blister, or shallow crater.

    Stage 3

    Stage 3 wounds are deeper than stage 2 wounds. They typically go down to the "fat" layer (subcutaneous), but do not extend any further. There may be dead tissue and drainage.

    Stage 4

    Full thickness skin loss with extensive destruction, tissue necrosis, or damage to muscle, bone, or supporting structures (e.g., tendon, joint capsule). Undermining and sinus tracts also may be associated with Stage 4 pressure ulcers. These wounds are characterized by going as far down as the bone and muscle. Dead tissue and drainage are almost always present.
