Tissue viability cameras

Patient wound care services have been affected by COVID 19 due to restrictions on wards.  Our tissue viability specialists need to ensure patients with wounds like leg ulcers are assessed and supported in how to wash legs, care for wounds and apply compression.  In a closed COVID ward situation assessments have proven more challenging. 

The purchase of 20 tissue viability cameras has meant that clinical staff on the wards are able to take images of patient's wounds and get them to our specialist team for assessment and advice more swiftly.
