Deb Pugh, RN, CWS
Involved in wound care for past three years. Fascinated with how the body heals itself and more importantly how we, as wound care specialists, can help the body heal better and faster when it is compromised. Becoming a nurse has been one of the best decisions I've made....it allows me to be an educator, an advocate and a caregiver all at once.

I have worked at the hospital for 28 years with the last 2 at The Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric medicine.

I have been at DCHS since 1994 and since 2015 at The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. I endeavor to assist patients to cope with the psychological and physical issues that come with being in treatment for a chronic wound. I find a sense of accomplishment in helping people heal. In order to assist my patients with current knowledge in wound care I worked for and obtained my Certified Wound Care Associate (CWCA) credential in 2017.
