At Bingham Memorial Hospital, we are proud to have two certified wound, ostomy and continence nurses: Jetta Tressell, RN, BS, CWON, and Katie Tweedy, RN, BSN, CWON. They are both certified by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB®). We are fortunate to have them on our team.

They both specialize in providing high-quality and compassionate care to patients with wounds, ostomies, or continence disorders. This includes: non-healing wounds or bedsores, frequent urination, loss of bladder and/or bowel control, and problems with ostomy, such as skin irritation, leaking and other delicate concerns.
