We understand the frustration associated with managing wounds and the difficulty in finding a product that works well. Managing a wound is not a simple task and occasionally a customer has questions regarding our products, application techniques, appropriate dressings, etc. Clearly, any problem wound should be seen and assessed by a qualified practitioner so that a Management plan can be established. The information that we provide through Ask-A-Nurse should not be construed as the sole source of medical advice, but as a suggestion, as it is impossible to properly assess an individual's condition over the phone or in writing."

        Ask Your Pharmacist! How to Read a Doctor's Prescription, Brilliant Communication or Chicken Scratch? :"Q. What does all that doctor's scribble on my prescription mean? Is there a trick to help me read prescriptions? A. Just like the English speak English, French speak French and the Vietnamese speak Vietnamese, doctors, nurses and pharmacists speak the language of medicine. It takes years of training to understand what might be spoken amongst health care professionals in your local hospital or the dense pages of information written in your own medical chart. Your prescription is an extension of this medical terminology. It contains key information and directions regarding your medication including the name, the dose, how to take it, when to take it, how frequently it should be ingested, and when the medication should be stopped, if it is to be taken for a definite duration."
