  • Patients with diabetes are vulnerable to infection and poor healing after injury.
  • Wound care using the steps and techniques described can achieve healing over time.
  • Post healing care instructions are an important part of successful treatment
  • Photos of the wound healing process are a good way to document the effects of treatment and provide a record for the health care team. Such photos can also be used to encourage patients with new wounds to work hard to obey care instructions
