Hull Earns Diabetic Wound Certification
October 17, 2017
CARROLLTON, Mo. – Carroll County Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that Sarah Hull, CCMH Director of Wound Care Services, has successfully passed the examination to become Diabetic Wound Certified.
The DWC credential is a multidisciplinary wound care certification available to licensed wound care professionals from across the healthcare continuum. This certification is the professional recognition that Sarah Hull, RN, WCC, DWC possesses the qualifications to deliver the highest standard in wound care to her patients.
“Sarah’s dedication to improving wound care at CCMH has significantly improved the outcomes of our patients,” Jeanne Meierer, CCMH Chief Nursing Officer, said. “With the advanced wound treatment modalities offered at CCMH, we have become a regional referral center for wound care. We have successfully treated patients that have battled the same wounds for over 20 years. We saved extremities after specialists at other facilities recommended amputations. We are seeing incredible results with our amniotic membrane allografts. We feel very fortunate to be able to provide this level of care at a rural Critical Access Hospital. I believe this additional education and certification will enable Sarah to continue improving our patient’s outcomes.”
CCMH opened its Wound Care Clinic over two years ago. In that time, there has been tremendous growth in many ways. It started out as a small clinic one morning a week and now sees patients daily. Services have expanded to include maggot therapy, human donated tissue allografts, a variety of edema management treatment options and cutting-edge techniques to improve wound healing.
Hull received her wound care certification through the National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy in September 2015. She was appointed director of wound care services when CCMH restructured the program in January 2017.
