What is Skilled Nursing?

An accident, surgery, a serious and debilitating illness or a chronic condition may call for skilled nursing care. In some cases, skilled nursing is the next step after you or a loved one leaves the hospital, and means a temporary stay before returning home or to another care setting, such as a nursing home. In other cases, especially when someone is elderly and in a fragile medical condition, skilled nursing is required in order to maintain good overall care for that person over the long term.

While skilled care can be provided in a number of settings, it’s always a high level of medical care that must be administered by trained medical professionals, including doctors and registered nurses (RNs), and physical, speech and occupational therapists.

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Most likely, it will be that person’s doctor(s) who recommends Skilled Nursing following a stay in the hospital for surgery or other serious medical event. Nursing care is appropriate for people who need professional medical care and supervision around the clock, whether temporarily or for the long term, based on their medical diagnosis, overall health, and prognosis for recovery and a return to living more independently.

A: This is 24/7 medical care and supervision that includes full-time help with the activities of daily living. It includes regular health monitoring, pharmacy services, and often onsite physical and occupational therapy. Residents stay in rooms that are private or semi-private, and can use scheduled, supervised transportation for outside doctor appointments.

A: These include everything from medical care and supervision to complete assistance with the activities of daily living. Residents receive three healthy meals each day, housekeeping and laundry services. Residents also commonly receive opportunities for social and recreational activities, plus transportation to doctor appointments. Many people who are receiving nursing care will use wheelchairs, walkers and/or canes. Social workers and case managers are also available to consult with residents and their families, to make sure the care is coordinated for each individual.

A: These terms are frequently used interchangeably. While Skilled Nursing can be provided in a number of different settings, and isn’t always needed long-term, a nursing home also provides Skilled Nursing care, but it’s often for long-term residents who need round-the-clock medical supervision plus help with the activities of daily living.

A: Yes, and it’s smart to think about future needs as you decide where you or a loved one will live. Now, many senior living communities offer a full array of care and services to make it easier to transition from one type of living option to another, and most communities will offer their residents priority consideration to other levels of care when they’re needed. It’s worth considering a senior living organization that offers you or your loved one these additional levels of care and extra peace of mind when you compare your choices.
