Sabrina Wirtgen completed her training as a qualified nurse HF and then worked for 16 years in the orthopaedic department of the Kantonsspital Baselland. In the last 2 years she has specialised in wound care and the treatment of wound healing disorders and completed her training as a SAfW wound expert.
In the case of conservatively treated patients, she coordinates wound consultation hours, plaster appointments and doctor consultations as required. For patients undergoing foot surgery, she acts as an interface between orthopaedists, surgical staff, the hospital ward and - if necessary - the subsequent rehabilitation clinic. As a care manager, she ensures that everything runs smoothly in both pre- and post-operative care.
