Skilled Nursing

Enhancing Quality of Care as Well as Quality of Life

Today's skilled nursing facility is characterized by a resident mix of those with serious medical needs, mental health issues, and dementia. Some residents require rehabilitation after a stroke, heart attack or major surgery.

Unlike other care settings, skilled care necessitates 24-hour supervision, wound care, medication passes, caring for those who are bed- and/or wheelchair bound, and greater medical complexities.

Other issues including quality of life, nutrition, life enriching activities, and support services are also important parts of a positive skilled nursing environment.
