Cedar Grove, NJ, November 21, 2016 – Alaris Health would like to congratulate our very own Alaris Health at Cedar Grove on becoming a VOHRA certified wound management facility, receiving the Center of Excellence for Wound Management award by the VOHRA Wound Center of Excellence Program, which identifies and highlights facilities that have developed a superior wound management program.
In order to be certified by VOHRA in wound management, a facility has to meet four qualifications, which state that it must have:
- designated and accountable VOHRA Wound Certified Nurse(s) seven days a week;
- a verified outcomes-focused, physician specialist-led wound care program;
- less than a 1% wound-related hospitalization rate; and
- regular team meetings with a focus on quality and process improvement (QAPI).
Alaris Health at Cedar Grove Administrator Jen Puleo said, “To be recognized by VOHRA for excellence in our wound care program is truly a testament to the care that our clinical team provides every day. I am extremely proud of them for achieving this award and we will continue to devote our work to improving the quality of life and care for each and every resident who comes through our doors.”
All Alaris Health at Cedar Grove registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) participate in the wound care program, which has been operating for more than 10 years. Alaris Health at Cedar Grove is now one of only four VOHRA Wound Management Certified Facilities in the state of New Jersey, which includes another one of our facilities, Alaris Health at Essex.
