The application of wound care is tailor-made, and a specific treatment plan will be drawn up for each person to achieve the best possible result. The Huidzorg West skin therapists focus mainly on wounds caused by lymphoedema complaints. In addition to applying the right wound care, compression therapy is very important.
Depending on the type of wound, the skin therapist will determine the wound policy
The skin therapist will remove old wound tissue if necessary
The wound will be cleaned appropriately
The appropriate wound material and dressing will be applied
No. The wound may be wet and therefore leak on the stocking. The wound material that is applied can also cause an incorrect pressure distribution on the leg and thus cause additional complaints. The skin therapist will therefore use an appropriate other temporary compression agent.
For burns, open wounds (ulcus cruris), skin tears, oncological wounds, diabetic wounds, bedsores or surgical wounds.
Special arrangements apply to the above treatments. Every health insurance company has a fixed rate for these therapies.
For chronic conditions, the first 20 treatments are covered by the additional package; from the 21st treatment onwards, the treatments are covered by the basic health insurance. If there is no supplementary insurance, the first 20 treatments are at your own expense, after which a claim can be made under the basic insurance.
