  • SWC creates multidisciplinary wound care, which has been shown to improve wound healing in multiple peer reviewed journals.1
  • SWC staff educate facility nurses on proper use of wound dressings and other healing tools.
  • SWC debrides wounds with necrosis, slough, or bioburden, which allows for 70% of wounds to decrease in size, and a 25% reduction in size in the first month of treatment for responding wounds.2
