Ann Marie chose to specialize in wound, ostomy and continence treatment because healing a wound gives individuals a sense of "being whole". When there is an open area of the skin, it greatly affects a person's sense of self. Preventing pressure injuries not only helps the hospital, but it assists the patient in not having to deal with a wound that was created during hospitalization.
