What is Skilled Nursing?
People often use the terms “nursing home” and “skilled nursing” interchangeably, but they’re actually very different care options. Skilled nursing facilities, also referred to as SNFs, provide round-the-clock medical care for patients transitioning from the hospital, as well as long-term care for those with ongoing medical needs.
In addition to providing on-site therapy, SNFs provide a wide variety of speciality care services, such as stroke recovery therapy, advanced pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation, wound care management, and tracheostomy care.
