Abstract

Once patients’ leg ulcers are healed, it
is recommended that you move them
from compression bandaging into
leg ulcer hosiery kits or maintenance
hosiery. But nurses often have
difficulty in getting patients to comply
with long-term hosiery use — which
does require a lot of commitment — and ulcers often return.
We asked Leanne Atkin, vascular nurse specialist at Mid-
Yorkshire NHS Trust, how to ensure that your patients
keep healing and remain healed when they move into
maintenance compression hosiery.
