Pleasant Ridge Manor’s Wound Management Team has a proven record for successfully caring for individuals with chronic wounds caused by vascular disease, diabetes, and other conditions. Hard-to-heal wounds can only get better with constant medical intervention. Pleasant Ridge Manor’s Wound Management team provides advanced wound care technologies with caring and compassionate attention.

Upon admission for wound care, the patient’s wound is assessed for size, granulation, odor, and drainage. Our team approach includes the use of Wound Vacuum equipment for reduced healing time, IV antibiotics, specialized air mattresses, and rehabilitation techniques of High Volt P Current electrical stimulation, diathermy, ultrasound, a customized diet plan, and pain management.
