Tissue viability

The tissue viability nursing service provides expert advice in the prevention and treatment of wounds of different types. Tissue viability nurses promote education in wound care.

Tissue viability mainly considers all parts of skin and soft tissue wounds, including wounds from surgery, pressure ulcers and leg ulceration.

At Musgrove Park Hospital we have a team of nurses that support other staff to manage patients with wounds, safely, effectively and compassionately across our hospital. This is important where there are difficult wounds or reasons why healing has not happened.
