SKILLED NURSING FAQ

When there’s an illness that doesn’t require hospitalization, but requires more help than home care and outpatient care can handle. Here are some conditions that often require Skilled Nursing:

  • Cardiac failure
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Diabetes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Severe osteoarthritis
  • Stroke
  • Other major illness

Short-term Skilled Nursing usually means that a resident will return home once treatment is completed. Long-term Skilled Nursing, on the other hand, is treatment of illness that is prolonged and indefinite. In this case, returning home may no longer be an option.

To make your transition to Skilled Nursing Care as seamless as possible, please provide this information when you come:

  • Health insurance, with policy numbers of private medical insurance, prescription plan, Medicare/Medicaid, long-term care insurance, plus vision and dental (if applicable).
  • Medical information, with doctor and pharmacy contact, medical diagnoses, allergies and drug sensitivities, health history, and a health event log with hospitalizations, surgeries and major health events (if any).
  • Medications, including (for each) the name, dosage, how and when to take it, why it was prescribed, start and stop dates, whether monitoring is required, the doctor who prescribed it and if there are any side effects.
  • If you hold the patient’s Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, bring a copy. If you have a copy of their advance medical directives, such as a Do Not Resuscitate order (DNR) or a Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment form (POLST).
