Pender, NE (September 18, 2023) – Pender Community Hospital (PCH) has announced the expansion of its wound care services through the hire of Janis Harrison, RN, BSN, CWOCN, CFCN. Harrison has more than 30 years of nursing experience and has achieved national recognition for her work as a certified wound, ostomy and continence nurse (CWOCN), her work as a certified foot care nurse (CFCN) and her research on cutting-edge wound-care practices.
“We are so proud to announce the hiring of Janis Harrison,” said Laura Gamble, CEO at PCH. “By expanding these services at PCH, we are able to help so many more patients in the local community. Patients won’t have to travel far to receive this care.”
Harrison has already started seeing patients for wound-care, ostomy, continence treatment, along with foot care at PCH by appointment.
“I am excited to be part of the PCH team and share the expertise I’ve developed around wound care,” said Harrison. “It feels like the best place to serve as many patients as possible in my quest to heal and serve the rural population.”
These services are especially useful for individuals suffering from wounds that won’t heal properly due to infection, diabetes, circulation problems, lifestyle issues, coexisting health conditions, age, skin-tissue health, pain, anxiety, lack of knowledge or lack of ability to care for a wound at home.
