The rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic has hospitals and acute care facilities changing standard operating procedures to prepare for the expected influx of infected patients. As a result, wound care services, procedures and surgeries are undergoing considerable change. The Alliance is staying on top of these issues and responding when wound care is threatened. In addition, we will keep you up-to-date on new policies, challenges and opportunities for our community.
