Little Falls Hospital Invests in Technology to Improve Wound Care Workflow

Little Falls Hospital has received $10,640 from the Samuel S. Dale Trust Fund for a 4D PhotoStation Manager System to assist with wound care. The 4D PhotoStation System visually documents a wound healing over time and provides proof of stage and size of healing wounds ...

The system will allow Little Falls Hospital to incorporate high-end digital photography into the wound care workflow, which will improve medical documentation by creating an efficient process for capturing, organizing and using wound images.

The 4D PhotoStation Manager System includes 4D PhotoStation Manager™ Software, a Nikon D90 12 Megapixel Digital SLR, a Nikon 60mm Macro Lens, a Windows laptop computer, and an ergonomic point-of-care mobile workstation cart. The data provided by the system will also be integrated into the electronic medical record system that is being implemented by Bassett Healthcare Network.

“The capabilities of the PhotoStation Manager gives us the ability to assist in outpatient wound care, improve inpatient wound care and decrease patient stays in the hospital,” said Kathleen Dibble, R.N., nurse manager of LFH’s inpatient unit.

Little Falls Hospital continues to evolve as the county’s sole acute care hospital and is proud to serve the residents of the Mohawk Valley. This is accomplished with the continued generosity of the Samuel S. Dale Trust Fund.
