Queen Anne is Crowned with Certification
Queen Anne Nursing Home in Hingham, MA is the most recent facility to receive the Vohra Center of Excellence for Wound Management Certification. Vohra Physician Dr. Zidoon Nasser, MD award the certificate to the nursing team last week. “Queen Anne is one of my most beloved facility partners in my practice,” said Nasser. “The wound care team and staff is highly skilled. I have worked with the Director of Nursing Katie Vaughn since my first day servicing this facility.” Vaughn believes it’s the teamwork between Dr. Nasser and the nursing staff that helps the Queen Anne residents receive optimal wound management. Vaughn said, “Dr. Nasser has been working with the staff at Queen Anne Nursing Home for the past 4 years. With his skill and expertise, we have been able to improve and maintain a strong wound prevention and wound care program. We have seen significant improvements in our wound healing rates and complication rates. Dr. Nasser and Vohra Wound Physicians have become an integral component of our facility wound program.” To qualify for the Vohra Center of Excellence Certification, Queen Anne had to meet certain clinical criteria. Those achievements include having a less than 1% wound-related hospitalization rate for at least a year and having regular team meetings to discuss the care plan and wound healing outcomes of their residents. Nasser continued, “With the team effort, we have improved wound healing outcomes and reduced rehospitalization rates. We have built and maintained a very strong prevention program as well. For all of their hard work, and for consistently providing top level care for their residents, they were rewarded with the Center of Excellence Certification.
