How do I seek treatment for a non-healing wound?
At Qualicare, our Care Team will look at the underlying source of the non-healing wound to determine the best care and treatment.

A non-healing or chronic wound is defined as a wound that doesn’t improve after four weeks or does not heal in eight weeks. Chronic wounds are locked in the inflammatory state of wound healing.
