Orthopedic Wound Care Cleaning Singapore

Orthopedic Wound Care Cleaning Singapore

Following any forms of injuries that causes open wounds or any orthopedic injuries that requires invasive surgery, it is highly likely that you will have a sutured (stitched) closed wound that will require consistent

  • cleaning to ensure lowered chances of infection
  • monitor the wound condition to ensure quick management in the event of any problems

Sutures, also known as stitches, are used to ensure wounds that open (exposing structures underneath) are stitched and pulled together to close the wound, and is often accompanied with a cover of iodine as well as a gauze cover that is taped over the sutured wound to protect the wound and prevent infections.

Orthopedic Wound Care Cleaning Singapore

Depending on the type, cause and depth of the wound, your wound care and cleaning treatments may differ, but usually it'd include an examination of the wound, cleaning and then closing the wound.

For simple orthopedic wounds, cleaning can be done using a variety of cleansing solutions including sterile saline solutions or antiseptic solutions, done using a method that is sterile, in order to prevent the introduction of surface bacteria to the wound.

Most of clean open wounds do not require any antibiotics prescription unless the wound is or has been contaminated or if any bacterial cultures have been found.

Orthopedic Wound Care Cleaning: How often should the wound be cleaned following an operation or stitching?

Depending on the condition of the wound, you may need between 1-7 times of wound care and cleaning per week.

If the wound that you have is stable, it is clean and dry, you may need around 1-2 times wound cleaning per week. However, if the resulting wound is very wet, or becomes increasingly wet,  is at risk or is already infected, you may need your wound care to be done daily until the wound has healed or until the stitches may be removed (14 - 21 days time). Sometimes you may need to have the wound care done twice per day for closer monitoring and cleaning of wound to ensure / prevent infections.

If you note there is a foul smell coming from the wound, or that you seem to be developing a fever, there may be a localized infection that needs to be dealt with - to be safe, when you come for wound dressing, if we find that there seems to be an unresolved infection, we will immediately refer you to a GP or specialist to manage and treat the infection.

Once the wound has been cleaned, it should be covered with a moist gauze then covered with a dry one, and then followed by a bandage that is secured to the area around the wound.
