Touching Lives One Patient At A Time

Skilled Nursing

Skilled Nursing is care provided by a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in accordance with a physician's signed plan of treatment in the comfort and security of a patient's home.

The RN makes the initial evaluation visit and establishes a nursing Plan of Care (POC) for the patient. The RN regularly reevaluates the nursing needs of the client and makes any necessary adjustments. The RN coordinates the total POC including teaching the patient and/or caregiver about the client's care. This teaching may include, but is not limited to procedures such as insulin administration, medication administration, diet, wound care, IV administration and disease management.

The RN serves as liaison with the patient's physician, caregivers, family and other members of the health care team. Our nurses have expertise in many areas including geriatric care, IV infusion, diabetes, cardiology, wound care, pain management, oncology, Alzheimer's and chronic disease management.
