- Skilled Nursing Care. Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are for patients whose conditions requires around the clock oversight and treatment that can only be given by licensed nurses. SNFs provide rehabilitation and nursing care for patients who require short-term recovery following an acute illness or accident. Skilled nursing facilities also are for patients who may be bedridden, or who require treatment of chronic conditions as well as assistance with the activities of daily living for extended periods of time.
- Sub-acute or Transitional Care. Sub-acute care is post-hospital, often for individuals with complex medical conditions that are more intensive than skilled nursing care, but less intensive than hospital care. Sub-acute care is for patients who continue to need intravenous therapy, tracheostomy care, or treatment of extensive wounds. It is also for patients who require intensive rehabilitation for various neurological and orthopedic conditions.
Our nursing care programs are run under the supervision of highly qualified medical directors. The medical directors are in consultation with the patient's primary physician to monitor and implement the specific medical or rehabilitation protocols prescribed for the individual.
