  • Weekly Vohra physician-led wound rounds

  • Facility wound-related hospitalization rate of less than 1%
  • Having a Vohra-certified nurse on staff

Golden Ridge places a top priority on healing and rehabilitating our residents to return them to their homes. — Golden Ridge Administrator John Adams

“In partnering with Vohra, Dr. Maximilian Bekhit, a specialized wound physician, visit with our community weekly to treat our residents with wound and skin issues. This reduces the need to send our residents out to wound care centers or hospitals,” said Golden Ridge Administrator John Adams.

The wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, staff nurses and other specialists to ensure our residents are receiving excellent wound care. The types of wounds treated include pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial wounds, diabetic neuropathic wounds, post-surgical wounds and others.

As long-term facilities, such as Golden Ridge, continue to provide more specialized services with complex ailments, the presence of a wound physician is an important link in providing superior care.
