What is a foot care nurse?
A foot care nurse is a nurse that has successfully completed additional training in foot care.
We do everything from routine nail and skin care, removal of corns, callouses, aiding in wart treatments, identifying and correcting areas of concern, risk reduction, client advocacy and education - all with the compassionate care of a nurse.
Clients with diabetes especially can benefit from the care of a foot care nurse, its estimated that 80% of diabetic foot ulcers could be prevented with early screening, education, and care.
Early screening for vascular disease as well as prescribed and over the counter compression therapy
Over the course of our lives our feet do an awful lot of work, hammer toes, bunions, corn, or callouses can cause a great deal of discomfort. A foot care nurse can help to provide relief.
Often as people age their feet just become too challenging to continue to care for by themselves. Many clients seek care due to trouble reaching, vision loss, reduced dexterity or hand strength.
