Generations at Peoria has been re-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.
Christy Delaware, Administrator at Generations at Peoria, said, “We are excited to announce that Generations at Peoria is a Center of Excellence for wound care management. We currently have three VOHRA wound care certified nurses in our facility. Sandra Bender, RN, BSN, is our full-time wound care nurse. We are very proud of our healing hands here at Generations at Peoria.”
Generations at Peoria places a top priority on healing and rehabilitating our residents to return them to their homes. We admit patients with chronic or complex wounds because we are equipped to treat them with our specialized wound management program.
We have partnered with Vohra Wound Physicians to bring physician-led bedside wound care to our facility. A Vohra wound physician visits our facility weekly to treat our residents with wound and skin issues. This reduces the need to send our residents out to wound care centers or hospitals.
Our multispecialty team treats all types of wounds including pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial wounds, diabetic neuropathic wounds, post-surgical wounds and others.
Our facility has an interdisciplinary team to care for our residents. The wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, staff nurses and other specialists to ensure our residents are receiving 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 superior care.
Generations at Peoria is a 115-bed, 24-hour rehabilitation and skilled nursing community offering quality healthcare services to residents throughout central Illinois. Generations at Peoria offers a wide variety of post-acute and skilled nursing care services including short-term rehabilitation, orthopedic rehabilitation, stroke rehabilitation, cardiac rehabilitation and more.
