This spring, Wesbury Grace Rehabilitation and Health Center became certified by Vohra Wound Physicians as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management, a designation that only 10% of Vohra’s skilled nursing facility partners have achieved. This certification was created to highlight facilities that have developed a superior wound management program. It is a yearly distinction, and facilities must meet all criteria that include:
- Having less than 1% wound-related hospitalization rate
- Regular wound care team meetings focused on Quality and Process Improvement (QAPI)
- Having a designated Vohra wound care certified nurse available seven days per week.
For close to two decades, Wesbury’s Wound Care Team has been at the forefront of successfully treating residents with acute and chronic wounds. Our multidisciplinary team approach to wound healing includes the wound team, floor staff, the personal care physician, the Vohra physician, physical therapists, our dietician, as well as our nursing leadership.
Wesbury’s Vohra wound physician, Dr. Amy Miles, D.O. visits weekly and provides bedside treatment for skin conditions, wound care, and procedures without residents having to be sent out to a wound center or hospital.
“I am incredibly proud of our team’s achievement in being recognized as a Center of Excellence in Wound Management by Vohra Wound Physicians. This Certification shows an acknowledgment of our team’s dedication to providing outstanding wound care and healing outcomes to our residents. I am honored to be part of such a hardworking and committed Team at Wesbury” says Jessica Brown, RN, WCC, Wound Team Coordinator.
Wesbury is committed to staffing a dedicated team of wound nurses to ensure the highest quality of care. Wesbury’s top-quality care and excellent outcomes remain our highest priority, and our designations such as Cardiac and Wound Care Centers of Excellence reaffirm this.
“I am very proud of Wesbury United Methodist Community for achieving this award,” says Dr. Miles. “Wesbury has excelled in wound prevention and wound care. They exceed best practices and do an excellent job of providing the best of services.”
