We make it easier for staff to do the right thing

Practicing proper skin and wound care can be overlooked by frontline staff. We believe it takes a 360-degree view to drive positive change and improve outcomes. Partnering with our clinical experts, including many Board Certified WOC nurses, we created Medline’s Skin Health Solution. Our comprehensive approach empowers clinicians to put prevention first. From best practice guidance and staff training to a unique system products, this is how we make skin health second nature.

What’s keeping your staff from focusing on skin health?

We help you overcome the barriers to improving outcomes, including:
  • Lack of standardization from too many products results in inconsistent practice at the bedside.
  • Limited skin health knowledge means caregivers lack confidence.
  • WOC nurses who are stretched thin with growing lists of responsibilities.
