|RMC approves outpatient therapy program|
Riverland Medical Center unanimously board members approved a program for outpatient therapy at its meeting Tuesday.
"This is going to be a service to our community and provide added outpatient revenue for the hospital," said Riverland Administrator Vernon Stevens.
The program is being operated by Louisiana Wound Care Specialists. It is designed to treat the patient with a comprehensive management plan.
Stevens said Dr. Ron Gregg will serve as the surgical specialist and see patients needing wound treatment each Wednesday.
"There will also be specialists who will treat, clean and dress the wound following the surgery," Stevens said. "You really don't have this type of therapy in the area."
Stevens said nursing home patients and bed-ridden patients needing wound treatment will be brought to the hospital.
"And these people will follow up on their needs," he said.
The wounds to be treated include diabetic ulcers, pressure infected or necrotizing wounds, trauma wounds, dehisced surgical wounds, complex soft tissue wounds and compromised skin grafts and flaps.
"There will be a lot of lab work involved and probably some X-rays," Stevens said.
Stevens said the program should be operating in three weeks.
For the month of August, Riverland had an anticipated profit of $240,854.
Total patient revenue is $2.254 million. Deductions to revenue was $1.362 million, net revenue was $1.326 million and expenses were $1.085 million.
