safety and standards of care. More than 1,600 individual standards had to be successfully met to receive accreditation.

"The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Institute represents the most advanced integration of hardware, software, staff training and credentialing available to the region," said Glenn Butler, CEO of the Life Support Technologies group, which has partnered with Good Samaritan Hospital to develop the Institute. "Being a UHMS-accredited facility demonstrates that the Institute has been thoroughly examined and deemed successful in meeting the national standards set forth by UHMS and The Joint Commission."

Institute is Research Leader

The staff of Good Samaritan Hospital's Wound and Hyperbaric Institute is among the leaders in industry research.  To date, the Institute's team has produced three scholarly papers in the field of Wound Care and Hyperbarics. Most recently, Nurse Practitioner Lise Crapella was invited to present her paper, "Creative multidisciplinary effort in utilizing both new and old modalities: treating a large complicated wound in life threatening case of mixed synergistic Fournier's Gangrene," to the Oxygen Research Foundation's Science of Wound Care, Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Conference and Expo on August 4-7, in Palm Beach, Fla.

Crapella, who received her Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Certification, believes that teamwork at Good Samaritan contributed to the success of the patient suffering from Fournier's Gangrene.

"There are a lot of choices in topical wound care for patients," said Crapella. "Our team collaborates to discuss what the best and most feasible option is for each patient.  This particular patient who we discussed in our scholarly paper required surgical treatment, topical treatment and hydrotherapy.  The combination of treatments helped the patient heal and be discharged."

Previous scholarly paper authors include Dr. Laura Sudarsky, MD, FACS, Chief of
