Vohra Certifies Seneca Health & Rehabilitation
Seneca Health & Rehabilitation in Seneca, SC celebrated Nurses’ Week by being recognized as a Vohra Center of Excellence for Wound Management. Vohra Physician Dr. David Violette, MD has been leading the wound care team at the facility for two years, helping guide them toward this certification.
“I have seen so much improvement and a such commitment to quality and excellence at Seneca, Violette said. “Several times a week, their staff and I touch base about wounds in order to provide the optimal delivery of patient care to the residents. The Director of Nursing, Bethany Davis, has been instrumental in ensuring consistency in the staff.”
Davis has seen the advantages of being able to have a wound specialist physician treat the residents at their bedside, as opposed to having to send them out to a wound care center or hospital. “Seneca Health & Rehabilitation serves a vital role in healing chronic wounds allowing the residents of Oconee County to receive treatment locally instead of leaving the county for treatment in a long term acute hospital or subacute facility. Dr. David Violette, MD, a board-certified trauma and wound surgeon, is our wound specialist. Our wound care team has been very successful in improving venous and arterial ulcers, as well as stage 3 and 4 pressure wounds.”
Seneca Administrator Diane Parson says the facility puts a focus on taking great care of their residents with wound and skin issues. “Seneca Health & Rehabilitation is committed to excellence in the prevention and treatment of skin disease and wounds,” Parson said. “Through a collaborative initiative with Dr. Violette and the Vohra team, we assess each patient according to their risk factors, potential for decline and improvement. Our nurses are educated on the latest trending development of skin care products and treatments. We are honored to be a wound care partner with Vohra.”
Vohra Certified Nurse Pam Morse says she and the other nurses take pride in their level of patient care. “Wound prevention is key,” Morse said. “Taking care of wounds and alleviating a patient’s pain and discomfort is my goal. My favorite note to enter is “area resolved!”
Wound Care Nurse Sonya Holbrooks agrees. “Our facility seems to have made great improvements in wound care,” Holbrooks said. “Wound care is my favorite task as a nurse. Seeing wounds go from stage 2 to healed is unbelievable. The C.N.A.’s and staff also do a great job of turning and repositioning patients. My favorite part of the week is working with our wound doctor and seeing the progress the wounds are making.”
