Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing (formerly known as Enterostomal Therapy or ET Nursing) is dedicated to the acute and rehabilitative care of individuals with wound, ostomy or continence needs. The WOC nurse plays a pivotal role in providing optimal patient care in multiple healthcare settings including inpatient, outpatient, long-term care, hospice and home health. The WOC nurses at Floyd County Medical Center are graduates of an accredited Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Educational Program and are certified by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board.
We utilize evidence based therapies including compression wraps, negative pressure wound therapy, and antimicrobial dressings. To meet all the needs of our patients, we work in conjunction with your health care provider and other departments including diabetes management, physical and occupational therapies, and our registered dietitian.
7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. By appointment only but there is some flexibility.
