A skilled nursing facility is a special facility or part of a hospital that provides medically necessary professional services from RNs, LPNs, physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and audiologists.What is Skilled Nursing Care? Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care that must be provided by trained individuals, such as registered nurses (RNs), physical, speech, and occupational therapists. These services can be necessary over the short term for rehabilitation from an illness or injury, or they may be required over the long term for patients who need care on a frequent or around-the-clock basis due to a chronic medical condition. Examples of skilled nursing services include wound care, intravenous (IV) therapy, injections, physical therapy, monitoring of vital signs, medical conditions, and equipment. Skilled nursing care is typically provided for rehabilitation patients that do not require long-term care services. This type of care is also referred to as post-acute care, in that it typically is provided following an emergency hospital stay. What is the difference between a nursing home and a skilled nursing facility? Skilled nursing care is typically provided for rehabilitation patients that do not require long-term care services. A skilled nursing facility (SNFs) includes senior care, meal preparation, and non-medical assistance, but also has specialized staff such as speech-language pathologists, rehabilitation specialists, audiologists, among others. These medical professionals are not typically staffed in a nursing home.Nursing home care provides permanent custodial assistance, whereas a skilled nursing facility is more often temporary, to solve a specific medical need or to allow recovery outside a hospital. Nursing home care is similar in that residents receive care with the presence of certified nurses, meal preparation, and non-medical assistant like bathing; however lack the on-site licensed medical practitioners of a skilled nursing facility.
