Doppler Ultrasound Assessments Built into Standard Resident Podiatry Assessments

Doppler Ultrasounds now part of resident podiatry assessments

We’ve listened to our clients and now include Doppler ultrasound assessments into annual resident podiatry assessments at no extra cost.

We share the desire to raise the standards of care in this sector and make a difference in people’s lives.  Whilst we already utilise Doppler ultrasounds for clients that show symptoms of peripheral vascular issues, by preventatively using this screening tool for every resident as standard will help flag residents that have poor quality blood flow in their lower limbs even before symptoms may appear.

Early detection means that a facility’s multi-disciplinary team can look at further testing to facilitate an unrecognised condition, as well as implement complementary therapy services such as physiotherapy or dietetics to help reduce the risk of complications related to diabetes, strokes, and clots that if left untreated, may result in a preventable fatality.

Doppler ultrasound assessments are also available on request, whether it’s for new resident admissions, someone has a newly developed leg/foot wound or a change in health status. We want to ensure every resident is receiving the best possible care.

At Empower we do more, so you get more. We offer value packed solutions that aim to maximise the quality of the allied health services you receive for your investment.
