Wound Care

Wound Care FlyerWhen you return home after surgery at Sydney Adventist Hospital, you may have questions about caring for your wound. Our Wound Care flyer (shown on the right) aims to provide you with information on how to look after yourself and your wound so that you can return to optimum health as quickly as possible. This information should be used in conjunction with any information given to you by your doctor.

This flyer has also been translated into Chinese (download PDF here).
