With a wound, the skin is damaged, either through illness or trauma. All of us have to manage a wound or a cut at some time or another. Some wounds require acute care by a nurse or specialist and some can be treated at home.
Common wounds include: abrasions, cuts, blisters and burns. The wounds that are often seen at Huidzorg West are the wounds that have more impact on the skin, such as wounds after an operation, or wounds resulting from an illness or serious burns.
The healing process of these wounds is also often slower and more irregular and therefore requires the attention and specialist skills of a wound expert.Frequently asked questions about wounds
