For most people, wound healing is a natural, uneventful process. For some individuals, however, it becomes a complex medical problem requiring specialized treatment and care. There are many reasons why a wound will not heal and it takes a specially-trained care team to assess a non-healing wound and develop the right plan for treatment. LEIF ERICKSON, a director at Redlands Community Hospital, will talk about the of the Bangasser Wound Care Center at RCH and its importance to patients.

End of February! After a brief stint of being missing I am back this week! I was informed there was a stirring rendition of a song written just for me! I never got to see the lyrics but I am sure it was a positive, uplifting song and I can’t wait to thank whoever wrote it for their kindness……Also I wanted to give a big thanks to VICTORIA MARSHALL for filling in for me the last two weeks! I asked her on short notice both times and she jumped in to help with no hesitation!
