“Hampton Roads Specialty Hospital has a philosophy of providing the best in patient care. Selecting WoundRounds for automation of our wound care management program reflects our belief in investing in the best technology for the best outcomes for our patients,” said Courtney Detwiler, RN, Administrator.

“We are seeing savings of 50% for nursing time spent on wound documentation and reporting. But more importantly, we are seeing a reduction in our facility-acquired wounds just three months into using WoundRounds,” adds Detwiler.
