Skilled Nursing Care

imageOur team of Skilled Nurses will coordinate the Plan of Care your doctor has prescribed for you with the other members of your team to help meet your needs and get you the best care possible.

On the first visit, your nurse will make a general assessment of your condition, which will include asking about your medical history, assessing your overall health, and gauging your ability to manage your medications and treatments.

One of the most important duties of your nurse is to provide medication reconciliation to avoid omissions, duplications, or dosing errors or potentially dangerous drug interactions.

Your nurse will also evaluate the safety of your living environment and the ability of you and/or your family member to access emergency help, if needed.

Specific services provided by nurses include:

  • Monitoring of vital signs and blood glucose level
  • Administration of infusion medicines
  • Peripheral/Central IV Line Care
  • Monitoring of anti-coagulation medicines (Coumadin or Warfarin)
  • Wound care and prevention
  • Feeding Tube care
  • Foley Catheter Care
  • Patient care teaching on Nutrition, Disease control process, intervention and prevention
  • Diabetes management
  • Pain management

Your nurse will report back to your doctor if you need more help or if you have a chronic condition and how to self-manage it, increasing your independence.
