During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Woundtech is committed more than ever to help enhance our patients' safety and peace of mind while receiving wound care at home. Woundtech employs industry-leading, comprehensive protocols to help ensure the safety and well-being of every single one of our patients. Our multi-pronged approach aims to meet or exceed COVID-19 guidelines published by the Centers for Disease Control ("CDC"}, the World Health Organization ("WHO") and other applicable federal and state agencies to provide safe care for vulnerable patient populations who need it the most.
How Woundtech is keeping patients and clinicians safe during the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic
Woundtech provides service to a very vulnerable population and their safety is our number one priority. By providing advanced wound care in their places of residence, Woundtech is helping patients avoid unnecessary exposure to healthcare facilities, where higher concentrations of people could further increase their risk of COVID-19 infection.
Woundtech has education and infection-control protocols in place for our team of field clinicians providing care at patients' places of residence. Woundtech is following CDC, WHO and American Medical Association ("AMA") guidelines to ensure that our field clinicians provide the safest possible care to patients.
Our field clinicians, a team of Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Podiatrists, have advanced training in infection control and wound management, allowing them to provide effective care and create a safe environment for Woundtech patients. Woundtech has been working tirelessly to make available the most updated COVID-19 information to Woundtech field clinicians and to try to provide them with the necessary personal protective equipment to keep them safe and able to provide care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Woundtech is continuing to accept new patients in order to ensure that all patients requiring wound care can be seen by clinicians in the patients' places of residence. Woundtech is also available to help wound care centers and home health care providers who are having difficulty seeing patients during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Woundtech is aware that wounds need to be immediately addressed with proper clinical care. Woundtech remains staffed and able to care for all such patients.
