(East Hartford, CT) Improved wound healing rates are a highlight of the partnership between Riverside Health & Rehabilitation Center and Vohra Wound Physicians. The skilled nursing facility in East Hartford, CT has seen its wound healing rate quadruple under the care of Vohra Physician Dr. Srini Conjeevaram, M.D. and its nursing team. For their efforts, the facility has earned the Vohra Center of Excellence for Wound Management Certification for the second straight year.

“I’m so proud of our nursing team for achieving the Vohra Center of Excellence Certification,” Riverside Director of Nursing Lucie Dike said. “We enjoy working with Vohra Wound Physicians and are glad to have Dr. Conjeevaram making wound rounds here weekly. The collaboration between Dr. Conjeevaram and our nursing team has allowed our healing rates to improve across the board.”

“I enjoy our partnership with the team at Riverside, said Dr. Conjeevaram. “The facility staff clearly has a commitment to excellence and the nursing team is very consistent with its level of care for the residents. I enjoy working with them and we’ve seen great healing results. That’s why they’ve been honored as a Vohra Center of Excellence for the second year in a row.”

Dike says the partnership with Vohra Wound Physicians has enhanced Riverside’s wound care program and helps enhance a complete plan of care for each of its residents dealing with wound issues. “Having a wound specialist physician come to the facility each week is so much better for our residents with wound and skin issues. Our residents and family members are so pleased they don’t have to go out to a wound care center or hospital. The physician comes to the facility weekly to take care of them at their bedside. Dr. Conjeevaram answers all their questions and concerns right here in the facility.”
