Wound Care Expert Witness
Wound experts are patient care professionals with experience treating a range of wounds—from bed sores and burns to weapon injuries. They manage the treatment of acute wounds, resulting from surgery or trauma, and chronic wounds that failed to heal correctly.
Wound experts can opine on the standard of care for hemostasis, reperfusion therapy, compression, and wound dressing. Wound experts commonly manage the following:
- Pressure ulcers (also known as bedsores or pressure sores)
- Venous ulcers
- Tissue repair
- Trauma wounds
- Burn wounds
- Skin grafts
- Chronic wound healing
Wound care experts work in several hospitals units, including the ICU, the operating room, and the critical care unit. They also work in inpatient settings managing patient care for bedridden patients. Wound experts may also work in designated wound care centers, nursing homes, elder care facilities, or hospices.
Attorneys typically retain wound care expert witnesses to opine on cases involving negligent treatment at wound care centers. Wound care experts may also opine on wound treatment at patient care facilities, such as nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.
