For over a decade, Therapeutic Surface Solutions (TSS) has been servicing long-term care (LTC) homes with both wound prevention strategies, as well as wound treatment products, services and resources. Our resident-centered business approach delivers quality and value, with a unique per diem program that provides prevention equipment and servicing based on a resident’s risk of developing a wound.
1 in 4 of long term care (LTC) residents will experience a pressure injury.*
Ulcers are costly and drain resources (Up to $90,000 for Stage 4 pressure injuries).
70% of pressure injuries are considered preventable.*
Pressure injuries are painful and decrease quality of life for residents.

Our per diem cost model allows cost containment for LTC homes. Treatment and prevention surfaces are included in the cost, and nursing hours spent on treating wounds are reduced.
Our team will become an integrated member with your staff to identify causes of wounds and suggest preventative devices that would help your resident’s wound condition. TSS will allocate a specialized program manager for each home to provide assistance and training for your staff, clean and repair therapeutic surfaces, monitor resident’s risk levels and monthly reporting to resident’s care team.
