Serenity Nurse Aide Academy
Serenity Nurse Aide Academy is an excellent school to obtain a nurse aide certification. The instructor is passionate about teaching well trained nursing assistants and was helpful in ensuring that everyone in our class was prepared for clinical and taking the certification exam. I had to complete this course in order to continue obtaining my RN degree and the instructor also provided me with advice for becoming a successful RN. I would recommend Serenity to anybody that wants to obtain a nurse aide certification.

Absolutely love CC! The staff is very kind, caring & prompt. We relied on their services after my grandfather became ill. As stubborn as he is, he felt right at home with them & was always smiling! We feel blessed to have found Caregivers!

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
