SKILLED NURSING CARE
Skilled nursing facilities, oftentimes referred to as SNFs, are facilities where patients receive skilled nursing services 24 hours a day by registered nurses. Skilled nursing is a level of care that can only be done by these licensed nurses. Often after a serious illness, an accident, surgery, a stroke or other complex medical conditions, skilled nursing care is required. Complex wound dressings, tube feedings or IV therapy and monitoring of rapidly changing health status are examples of some of the care given at this level.
