Keri Mullins, RN, BSN, Chief Clinical Officer of North Alabama Specialty Hospital, understands the importance of her facility's role within the continuum of care, which includes their wound care capabilities when considering ICU patients with highly complex wounds for admission. Keri adopts a zero compromise approach when it comes to the treatment of patients with highly complex wounds to prevent hospital readmissions and transition patients to the next level of care.
