What Is Skilled Nursing Care
Skilled nursing care is a level of medical care that is provided by licensed health professionals, such as a registered nurse or a speech or occupational therapist. This level of care is generally offered in assisting living communities, hospitals, and nursing homes. These services can be necessary over the course of rehabilitation or they may be required over the long term for patients with a chronic medical condition.
Choosing a Skilled Nursing Facility
If you’re considering checking your loved one into a skilled nursing facility, there are some things to look for. Do ample research. Try to visit the facility, ask about their policies and routines. You can also look at reviews the family members of patients have left about these facilities online. Make sure that you are making the best decision for your loved one and your family.
