102 Benefits of an RN Foot and Nail Clinic

A foot and nail clinic is an innovative solution to managing diabetic foot ulcers and mitigating costs associated with lower extremity amputation. The nurse operates the clinic; performs thorough assessments; debrides calluses and nails; and manages or refers problems -- thereby decreasing provider workload. This reduces facility costs, preserves patient function, and offers nurse specialization.
