Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The role of home health nursing is described in managing a postoperative wound infection. An 87-year-old woman underwent Mohs' cutaneous micrographic excision of an extensive basal cell carcinoma of the nose, with immediate reconstruction using a bilobed transposition flap. Her postoperative course was notable for an extensive wound infection characterized by cellulitis and local abscess formation. Inpatient admission was averted by using extensive home health nursing resources.
