Skilled nursing care is the delivery of daily nursing and rehabilitative services performed by skilled medical personnel. This care is administered with timely and realistic goals set at the start of treatment in collaboration with the physician, resident/family and skilled medical staff. Short and long-term rehabilitation services are prescribed by a physician for those residents who meet rehabilitation criteria for skilled nursing services or for those experiencing serious health issues requiring immediate and daily medical intervention. Skilled care is provided in a nursing home setting by trained nurses and physical/occupational/speech therapists all supervised by a physician. Treatment goals are reviewed regularly by the treatment staff and in cooperation with the resident/family. Encore Healthcare and Rehabilitation has designed a specialized skilled nursing wing which offers private rooms for all rehab residents, private dining and activities, close proximity and easy access to the therapy center, and specifically trained staff able to cater to the requests and needs of residents. Skilled nursing services provide the highest level of care available outside of a hospital setting for individuals who have health conditions that require constant monitoring and active treatment. Nurses and certified nursing aides are available around the clock to provide care for residents recovering from surgery, a hospital stay, an acute or extended illness and those that need long-term supervision and care. The primary goal of our skilled nursing program is to help individuals regain function at the highest level possible and to return home when possible. Our skilled nursing care provides:
- Post-hospital and post-surgical care
- Long-term custodial care
- Individualized care plans
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Therapeutic and special diets
The criteria for a rehabilitation stay generally follows a 3-midnight stay in a Medicare-approved hospital setting and requires a physician order. Allow Encore Healthcare and Rehabilitation’s Admissions Coordinator listed on the Staff Page to perform an on-site assessment of your post-hospital rehab needs. We are able to process your medical and financial certification for you with no obligation or commitment. Let us help you achieve your goals for a safe return home or in mastering a level of functioning that allows you to remain independent.
