Wound Care and Infection Control

Infected wounds are wounds in which bacteria or other microorganisms have colonized, causing either a delay in wound healing or deterioration of the wound. Most wounds are typically contaminated by bacteria. However, infected wounds result when the body's immune defenses are overwhelmed or cannot cope with normal bacterial growth. An infected wound may be characterized by increased or sustained pain, redness or swelling, pus discharge, bad odor or non-healing of the wound. Persons with decreased immune functions, such as diabetics or the elderly, are at risk for wound infections, since they cannot fight off infections easily. The prevention of wound infection should be a primary management objective for all healthcare practitioners.
