Join us on Thursday, January 26 for Wound Care 101,
Abbeville Area Medical Center’s Ladies’ Night Out Program
Do you have a wound that doesn’t seem to be healing properly? Many people, especially those with diabetes, can develop non-healing or chronic wounds. To learn more about the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of non-healing wounds, join us at Abbeville Area Medical Center on Thursday, January 26 at 7:00 pm for “Wound Care 101: When is your Wound a Problem? ” The program, which is part of the hospital’s Ladies’ Night Out series, will be presented by Lynn Sloan, RN, CWCA, CFCN, Clinical Coordinator of Abbeville Area Medical Center’s Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine Center.
“Diabetes is a growing health concern in this area of South Carolina as it is across the US,” said Sloan. “A predominant number of our patients are diabetics, and early diagnosis and treatment of their wounds is key to their quality of life and recovery. In fact, foot ulcers caused by diabetes lead to more hospitalizations than any other complication of the disease. During the program, we will discuss the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of non-healing wounds, and the treatments that can decrease the likelihood of hospitalization or amputation.”
Attendees will enjoy complimentary coffee, dessert and a drawing for great prizes.
