Wound Care - Sekoia

Wound Care

Tending to wounds is a regular part of the day in nursing homes. But that doesn't mean it's a simple procedure. Especially not for the less experienced members of staff.

Wound Care The Way It Should Be Done

What kind of wound

Describe the wound easily

Choose the best description of the wound from a set of pre-made choices. Or write your own comment. If you prefer you can also use speech-to-text.
Document where the wound is located

Document the area of the wound

Instead of describing which part of the body a wound has occured, simply mark the area on a picture.

Upload a photo of the wound

Good documentation is rarely just text. And when tending to wounds it makes a lot of sense to upload a picture of the wound for documentation purposes.
With the correct processes and data in place, you are able to continually grow as a care service. To not only replicate past results but also improve on them.

H.E.I.D.I.E Wound Assessment Tool

When you work with wound care, you need to have a fixed structure for how to handle it. In our experience, the HEIDIE Wound Assessment Tool provides an excellent workflow.

  • History. Take into account the patient’s medical, surgical, pharmacological and social history.
  • Examination. Of the patient as a whole, then focus on the wound.
  • Investigations. What blood tests, x-rays, scans do you require to help make your diagnosis.
  • Diagnosis. Aetiology / pathology.
  • Implementation. Implementation of the plan of care.
  • Evaluation. Monitor, assess progress and adjust management regimen, refer on or seek advice
