Stout is certified to assist with new Wound Care Clinic

Monday, May 22, 2023

For Trisha Stout, RN, BSN, WCC, wounds are “cool and gross,” but her fascination led her to be Wound Care Certified so that she can assist with the new Wound Care Clinic coming to Gothenburg Health.  

Stout is a registered nurse and has her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, but recently she said she attended a week-long class in Nashville followed by an exam to become Wound Care Certified. Stout has worked at Gothenburg Health for the past five years in the Surgery Department, but now will split her time between surgery and wound care.

When Amanda Standage, APRN joined the medical staff at Gothenburg Health, she brought with her expertise in wound care that has led to the addition of a Wound Care program through the Specialty Clinic. Standage began seeing wound care patients starting in May on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the afternoon. Stout will assist Standage during those specialty clinic times. Keep watching the NEWS section on the Gothenburg Health website for more information about the Wound Care program. 

“Wound care is needed in the community so that patients don’t have to travel to get the care they need. Wounds can affect other issues if not taken care of properly, so this is an important service that we are able to provide,” Stout said.

Originally from North Platte and a graduate from Hershey High School, Stout said she chose Gothenburg Health because she knew that she wanted to work in a critical access hospital. She now resides in Gothenburg with her boyfriend, Ben, and dog, Winnie.
