Park Place Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Earns Vohra Wound Care Certification
TYLER, TX–Park Place Nursing and Rehabilitation 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. 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. Park Place offers three certified nurses on staff, with additional certifications in progress.
“Park Place Nursing and Rehabilitation Center places a top priority on healing and rehabilitating our residents so they can return home,” said John McKeenan, LNFA, administrator, Park Place Nursing and Rehabilitation. “Our certification as a Vohra facility allows us to serve patients with chronic or complex wounds, providing them with excellence in care through our specialized wound management program.”
“We are excited to see Park Place placed in the top ten percent of Vohra wound care facilities, thanks to this certification and its commitment to exceptional care,” said Angela Norris, SVP of Business Development, StoneGate Senior Living. “As an award-winning group of care and living facilities committed to serving our patients, we look forward to continued leadership in wound care management and other services.”
Park Place’s partnership with Vohra wound physicians 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.
Park Place has an interdisciplinary team to care for residents. The wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, staff nurses and other specialists to ensure residents receive 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 link in providing the superior care Park Place is recognized for delivering.
