Wound Care and Diabetic Care

Wound Care Services

Millions of Americans live with chronic wounds as a result of complications from diabetes, circulation disorders, pressure ulcers, and injuries. These patients need an experienced team of medical professionals to customize a plan of care for their unique situation.

The staff at the Wound Care Center identifies the causes of these conditions and establishes a plan of care that includes professionals from all scopes of practice. Our team includes physicians and nurses specially trained in the management of chronic wounds. The team then creates an individualized treatment plan using advanced techniques and therapeutic products to heal your wound. Your primary care physician remains an active member of the wound management team.

 

Diabetic Education Program

The Outpatient Diabetic Education Program at Garrett County Memorial Hospital provides comprehensive diabetic education to those diagnosed with diabetes. The program is instructed by a certified diabetic educator who works with your physician to develop a plan to keep your blood sugar under control. You will learn about management of your disease, healthy eating, activity, reducing risks, and monitoring. We can also assist with insulin adjustments, insulin pumps, or continuous glucose monitors. Call 301-533-4271 for more information.
