In the modern day, several healthcare services seek to provide patients with comprehensive care. Due to the growing number of such services, it may be challenging to identify how they might be of use and when to use them. That’s where we come in!
Here at Americare Home Health, Inc., one of our goals as a trusted home health agency in Van Nuys, California, is to arm the community with resources they can use to their advantage.
That said, here are key facts that everyone should know about skilled nursing services:
- Skilled nursing is a high degree of care that necessitates extensive training and certification. It must be delivered or supervised by certified healthcare professionals like registered nurses, speech/language pathologists, and physical/occupational therapists.
- It offers a range of services which include (but are not limited to): post-operative wound care and complex wound dressings, administering and monitoring intravenous medications, including catheter and colostomy care.
- While skilled nursing care is most commonly associated with a skilled nursing facility, it can also be offered in various locations, including one’s home. That is made possible by home health care providers.
- If your loved one has a complex medical condition and requires round-the-clock care and certain types of treatments like physical therapy, skilled nursing care is one of the best options available.
