RANKFORT, Ky., (January 20, 2022)—Vohra Wound Care has been awarded a grant by Kentucky's Cabinet for Health and Family Services. The grant will improve the care of Kentucky's nursing home residents by training nurses about prevention, assessment and management of wounds in the nursing home setting. The $81,113 award is made possible through the reinvestment of civil money penalties issued to Kentucky nursing homes. The funding provides support for 150 nurses to become certified in wound care through the Vohra Wound Care Nurse (VWCN) certification program. Nurses from eligible facilities who complete this program will be awarded the credential of VWCN, an industry-leading certification specific to wound care of the nursing home resident.
Based on more than 20 years of experience caring for patients in nursing homes, Vohra Wound Physicians created this wound care certification program. The program offers 24 hours of CNE in 11 topic areas in an interactive online format. To register for this free education and certification under the award, go to vohrawoundcare.com/cmp/kentucky.
