Skilled Wound Care Physicians Group's mission is to transform the chronic wound care model in the nursing facility, in order to better patient’s lives, empower nurses, and raise public awareness. With our reliable and friendly service, our physicians and physician assistants work as a partnership with nursing facility staff to manage wounds, skin diseases, and ostomy/gastrostomy clinical issues. We visit the patient at the bedside so there are no transfers to hospitals or clinics. SWC's goal is to give long-term care nurses the right education and support to stay up to date on the latest wound treatments. Our expert physician rounds give patients the best chance to heal. Chronic wounds, which result from pressure, diabetes, or vascular disease have become an epidemic in the United States; SWC’s true expert providers allow for the proper identification and treatment of these wounds in the nursing facility setting. Patients in nursing facilities need the right collaborative care in order to heal their wounds, relieve their pain and suffering, prevent hospital readmissions, and overall health decline. Breaking the traditional model of “nurse follows doctor,” SWC empowers nurses to heal patients in collaboration with physicians and physician extenders. Together, SWC's nurse and nursing home partners are positively transforming traditional nursing home wound care.
