Gainesville Health and Rehab
My mother fell and broke her hip in May and was slow to recover from it going in and out of a rehab and hospital. We finally found Gainesville Health and Rehab and spoke with Devin about the facility. He was very helpful in us placing her in their facility. He is a very polite and caring young man. He goes above and beyond to make you feel at home. His staff is great, they all work hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. My mother has been in Gainesville Health and Rehab for about a week and a half and she has made such great progress. The therapists are great they are very knowledgeable and very caring. They work hard to help you get where you need to be so you can get back home. Thanks to Devin and all of his hard working staff members. We appreciate all of your hard work. Thanks again, Laura

Pecan Tree Rehab & Healthcare
I love Pecan Tree Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center! I am a resident who has lived at Pecan Tree for over three years. I have lived in other nursing homesbut they didn't hold a candle to what Pecan Tree has to offer! I love the people who work here. They care about the residents, place is clean and is always picked up. Staff are courteous and friendly. It's not home but it's the next best thing! I wouldn't go anywhere else!
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.
