Skin and Wound Care

With the removal of the Nova Scotia Wound Protocol from practice, there have been changes to the continuing care nursing services order requirement for wound care. All continuing care ordering for wound care now requires, as per NSHA CC,: 

  1. Wound location and type
  2. Wound cleansing solution to be used
  3. Type of dressing(s) to be applied 
  4. Frequency of dressing changes 

Along with the other pages on this site, below are some resources to support physicians and nurse practitioners with writing complete wound orders for homecare services for wound care.
