Nursing Specialist Clinic

Specialized medical services

The Nursing Specialist Clinic was established to provide highly professional nursing by the Department of Nursing, the Diabetes Care and Nursing Clinic in 2004 and Skin Care Clinic in 2011. Certified diabetes educators and certified nurses provide advanced nursing techniques in collaboration with each clinical section.

Diabetes Care and Nursing Clinic

Features

The Diabetes Care and Nursing Clinic provides foot care for diabetes patients with the guidance and cooperation of physicians of Metabolic Medicine, works to prevent the development and recurrence of diabetic foot lesions (foot ulcers, foot gangrene) and promotes the self-care of feet. At the same time, we provide guidance on diabetes treatment including insulin therapy and exercise regimen, as well as self-care support and consultation on individual patients’ lifestyles. From September of 2012, reaffirming the importance of self-care by diabetes patients based on dietary regimen, we assembled a team of physicians of Metabolic Medicine, managerial dieticians and certified diabetes educators to halt the progress of diabetic kidney disease, which is one of the complications of diabetes, and have begun guidance on preventing diabetic dialysis. In addition to diabetic foot care and self-care support, we have established a Diabetic Complications Clinic and Diabetes Metabolic Station Clinic, where we perform many tests for diabetic vascular complications in cooperation with physicians of Metabolic Medicine, and strive both for early detection of diabetic complications and to prevent their progression.

Skin Care Clinic

Features

The Skin Care Clinic provides care for patients who have undergone stoma construction surgery, including children. Involved from even before surgery, we offer care in cooperation with ward nurses during hospitalization.
