Atrium Post Acute Care of WayneView Becomes Vohra Wound Physicians Center of Excellence

WAYNE, NJ (February 20, 2019) – Atrium Post Acute Care of WayneView, now under new management, is proud to announce they have earned the Vohra Wound Physicians Center of Excellence Certification. Atrium WayneView has worked closely with Vohra Wound Physicians in order to create and maintain a complete plan to improve their wound care process. To qualify for the certification, Atrium WayneView had to achieve a less than one percent wound-related hospitalization rate for one year.  Vohra is the leading physician network devoted to post-acute wound care in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities.

“It is a privilege to work with Vohra Wound Physicians,” said France Tucker RN, BSN, CLNC, LNHA, Administrator at Atrium Post Acute Care of WayneView. “Proper wound care is of vital importance to our resident’s health and we are honored to have received this Certification.”

Claire Paninsoro, RN, Atrium WayneView’s Certified Wound Nurse, completed the Vohra training course which included 20 CEU credits. She now rounds with Vohra Wound Physicians’ Dr. Jennifer Syrek every Wednesday taking care of wounds and creating treatment plans. She oversees all of the nurses and works hand in hand with the dietician to help heal and manage wounds from the inside by improving the patient’s nutritional status.

Dr. Syrek said, “It’s my pleasure to recognize Atrium Post Acute Care of WayneView as a Center of Excellence. They currently have a hospitalization rate of less than 1%, related to the wounds thanks to our team approach. Nurse Paninsoro and I work with the dietician, physical therapists, occupational therapists and the rest of the staff to take care of these wounds. This team approach ensures that they heal properly.”
