Lisa Williams: my father got a nasty wound!
Recently, through our Facebook page, we were introduced to Lisa Williams, the sole caretaker of her 81-year-old father.
November 2015: minor injury resulted in a bad wound
He’s struggled with a wound on his leg since November 2015. His injury was the result of a common, routine motion—he leaned forward from his chair, reached down, and fell. He hit the inside of his ankle against the hard chair leg, which prompted severe swelling, but progressed to a large, open wound.
Beginning of December 2015: conventional treatments aren't helping
Lisa finds ENLUXTRA
As conventional therapies continued to fail and a scary prospect of leg amputation has started looming over, Lisa decided to take the matter in her own hands.
In her research she has come across our Facebook page, convinced her father’s doctor to order free samples of Enluxtra, and committed to a consistent treatment plan. She was not going down without a fight, and we’re glad she didn’t.
Healing progress full on
Lisa posted photos of her father’s wound after every Enluxtra dressing change and our entire team followed the healing progress with excitement. Lisa had all the help she could get from us, with our Clinical Director Vicki Fischenich commenting on every posted photo and pointing out the signs of healing that may not have been evident at first.
Could it happen to you?
Wounds like that of Lisa’s father are not uncommon and can develop unexpectedly after a seemingly insignificant episode. We have seen many cases of chronic wounds that started out as a small scratch on the skin surface.
What you as a medical professional should realize is that it is easy to prevent the wound from worsening and becoming chronic.
On high risk patients, such as elderly, diabetic, etc. we recommend treating even the smallest wounds with Enluxtra dressings. This will save you a lot of headache and your patient – a lot of unnecessary pain and frustration; it will also save a lot of time, money, and effort.
December 17, 21, and 28: Enluxtra treatment is started
January 7 and 10, 2016: seemingly unnoticable, the healing progress is evident when the wound photo is magnified
The importance of a pro
What’s most important is that your patients — however resourceful they are — should always rely on medical expertise to potentially save the limb (or even the life) of a loved one.
Lisa once commented on our Facebook page, “I just think people need to be more educated about the dressing and your company, because it’s doing an awesome job healing my father’s leg! We just need everyone onboard!”
So many people need experts like you—who are passionate about innovative technology in medicine and want to use it to help their patients while earning major kudos at their work place!
January 20, 24, and 29, 2016: notice rapid re-epithelialization
Yes! After three steady months, Lisa, her father’s wound care nurse, and their physician are practically pros at using Enluxtra. Despite a few initial setbacks, each dressing change revealed new, healthy skin, and a smaller wound. Lisa has updated us with incredible photos revealing her father’s wound. As of May 1 he no longer wears any dressings and his wound is completely healed!
May 1, 2016:
No more dressings!
