Importance of Proper Wound and Skin Care

Documentation is the pathway to appropriate treatment decisions, evaluating the progress of skin and wound healing, protection against litigation, and supporting payment decisions. Therefore, standardizing documentation throughout your organization is paramount for promoting quality care within a seamless system.

Unique Documentation System

WCS is the first to create a comprehensive documentation system and reference materials for skin and wound care. Used in tandem, these forms provide for the most state-of-the-art, comprehensive Documentation System available. Certain forms are printed on colored paper stock for ease of identification. The color-code pages prompts the caregiver to use these forms systematically.
