Earning the Vohra certification for wound care underscores South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center's commitment to excellent care.
ATHENS, Texas (PRWEB) November 29, 2018
South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center, part of the award-winning network of StoneGate Senior Living facilities, announces it has been certified by Vohra Wound Physicians as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management.
The facility joins its sister facility, Park Place Nursing and Rehabilitation, in joining an elite community; only 10% of Vohra’s skilled nursing facility partners have qualified for this annual certification.
Certification criteria for this recognition includes a facility wound-related hospitalization rate of less than one percent, tracking and reporting of wound outcomes, Vohra physician-led weekly rounds, and a Vohra-certified nurse on staff.
“South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center is committed to excellence in care, and wound management is a significant need for our patients,” said Mimi Cundieff, Administrator, South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center. “Our patients with chronic or complex wounds will receive exceptional, certified care as part of the Vohra wound management program.”
“Having South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center join sister care facility Park Place in earning this certification is a source of great pride and underscores our commitment to excellent care,” said Angela Norris, Senior Vice President of Business Development, StoneGate Senior Living. “As an award-winning group of care and living facilities committed to serving our patients, we are delighted to see our facilities earn the Vohra wound care certification.”
South Place’s participation in the Vohra wound care certification program ensures that physician-led bedside wound care is provided at the facility for treatment of wound and skin issues, reducing the need to send residents out to wound care centers or hospitals.
South Place delivers an integrated team of care professionals, ensuring a wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, staff nurses and other specialists to provide residents with excellent wound care. As long-term facilities continue to provide more specialized services with complex ailments, the presence of a wound physician is an important cornerstone of a nursing and rehabilitation program.
