Focused on quality care
The multidisciplinary team of the Wound Care Center at Baylor Scott & White – Irving consists of physicians on the medical staff, nurses, technicians, dietitians and care coordinators.
When a patient transitions from an inpatient to an outpatient setting, arrangements will be made to promote continuity of care.
In addition, a case manager works with the patient and family to help ensure the treatment plan is clearly understood.
The case manager stays in contact with the wound care patient between visits, works with home health providers or nursing home staff, and facilitates communication between the physician on the medical staff of the wound care center and the referring physician.
