Wound Care

Healing wounds is an important step in the rehabilitation process. When a wound does not heal in the proper manner or time period expected, it can delay a person’s full return to their daily lives following injury or surgery.

Northern Inyo Healthcare District’s supportive and knowledgeable Wound Care team is dedicated to treating acute and chronic, non-healing wounds. Our team provides specialized care to help facilitate healing for those patients needing that extra boost on their way back to living as normal, healthy and pain-free life as possible.

To promote healing, learning how to properly dress and care for wounds is vital. Our registered nursing staff is extensively trained in caring for chronic wounds. Our team also collaborates with physical and occupational therapists, nutritional management specialists, and other practitioners from different medical specialties to optimize treatment and healing.

NIHD’s Wound Care services include:

  • Debridement
  • Negative Pressure Therapy
  • Unna boot wrap

Outpatient Wound Care is part of the NIHD Infusion Center.

Please note that while construction has forced the temporary relocation of Wound Care from its usual home on the NIHD campus, services continue within the District. Please inquire as to location when you make your appointment,

To make an appointment, please call (760) 873-2619.
