Wound Therapy for Prisons
Wound therapy for prisons and correctional facilities is one of the many services we provide at Aeris Consulting. Our team provides staffing and equipment to prisons throughout the country, and we assist them in reducing risks to inmates and employees, and saving on costs. With Aeris on your team, you’ll be able to cut costs and provide needed health care, while staying within your financial constraints.
Wound therapy in correctional facilities is often not done properly – inmates often are victims of assaults and self-inflicted wounds, and the risk of infection in a prison environment is high. Inmates have lower limb ulcerations and self-inflicted wounds at a much higher rate than the general population. With lacerations, burns and stab wounds common in correctional facilities, this increases the risk of infection as well.
It’s often the case that a wound care specialist should be on staff to provide proper treatments, cleansing of wounds, and instructional healing services. Wound dressings need to be changed frequently, and occasionally antibiotic therapy may be needed.
Wherever there is an opportunity to cut costs, operators of correctional facilities need to examine possibilities. The cost of transporting an inmate to a hospital or an emergency room, and the cost of hospitalization, is a strain on prison budgets that are often limited to begin with. Wound care done properly on site is a significant cost-cutting measure.
In addition, being able to properly diagnose and treat an inmate’s wounds quickly can save them from more costly therapies and prevent more serious infections. Wound therapy within a facility also reduces risks to employees and liabilities to municipalities.
At Aeris, we’re dedicated to the highest level of patient care, and performing needed care within a location to reduce expenses whenever possible. We work with each individual facility to provide quality, cost-effective solutions. We recognize that every prison has specific needs, and we can adapt our services accordingly. Our goal is provide quality care in your facility while managing your expenses.
