Skilled Nursing Facilities

 

The type of care that may be administered ONLY BY A NURSING HOME near you, is defined by state regulations. Generally "medical procedures" and assistive acts requiring a nurse to physically "handle" a patient are limited to nursing home providers, when not in a hospital. Changing bandages deep wounds is often only permitted in Nursing Homes as is turning a patient in bed, who cannot turn themselves.
To learn where the line between a Nursing Home and Assisted Living is drawn in your state, see regulations in your state at seniorresource.com state resources. Also speak with the discharge planner at the hospital because they deal with the fine line between levels of care needed on a regular basis. They will know if a patient needs a skilled nursing facility, or can receive the care they require in Assisted Living..
