Quality wound care equals cost-effective wound care: a clinical model.

Author information

  • 1Cross Country Healthcare, New York, N.Y., USA.


The cost of wound care frequently is defined as the cost of materials and labor, ignoring the effect of both variables on outcome. As a result, money-saving measures actually may increase cost while reducing the quality of care. Definitions and tools to enable professionals to understand, evaluate, and compare the cost-effectiveness of wound care practices and treatment modalities are given.
