Heddington Oaks offers wound care and IV therapy in addition to occupational, speech and physical therapy. Our nursing staff provides these specialized services. We do not offer respiratory therapy at this time.
All wound care at Heddington Oaks is coordinated by a trained wound nurse. The wound nurse administers medications and treatments to promote the healing of pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers, and surgical incisions. All treatments are monitored by a physician.
Heddington Oaks also coordinates transport to an area wound clinic for hyperbaric treatment.
Heddington Oaks is fully certified to administer intravenous (IV) therapy. IV therapies provided by our nurses include:
Intravenous fluids for hydration
IV antibiotics for the treatment of infection
TPN for nutritional needs
We also offer hypodermaclysis, which is an alternative to traditional IV therapy for rehydration.
