I was surfing the Internet today and found an interesting paper (although we could only access the abstract no thanks to the publisher). The article title, "Role of the wound ostomy continence nurse in the home care setting: a patient case study" poses an interesting question that faces many nurses treating patients with wounds. One important point addressed in this paper is that of a "fiscal and clinical duty to the patient" and I can't help but think of the incredibly low prices Parthenon has on wound care supplies. The product list continues to grow, but we offer currently ConvaTec products such as DuoDerm, Aquacel, and SAF-Gel. In addition, we have absorbent wound dressings of all sorts, calcium alginate dressings, collagen dressings, foam dressings, hydrocolloid and more! Next time you are in search of an inexpensive wound dressing, look no further than Parthenon. Call us toll free 1-800-453-8898 or visit online.
