Skilled Nursing – Adult and Pediatric
Registered Nurses (RNs) provide direct care or supervise care provided by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Certified Nurse Aide/Home Health Aide (CNA/ HHA). They manage, observe, and evaluate patient care and teach the patient and his/her family caregiver how to maintain their care at home. Examples of skilled nursing include giving IV drugs, shots, or tube feedings; surgical aftercare, ostomy care, changing wound dressings; and teaching about diabetic care care. Skilled nursing visits can range in time based on the services needed but typically are shorter visits that can range from a few times a day to once monthly.
Adults and children may qualify if you need any of the following:
- Wound Care
- IV antibiotics
- NG or G-tube care
- Dressing changes
- Central line care/maintenance
- Vital sign monitoring
- Blood sugar checks
- Weight checks
- Ostomy care
- Catheter care
- Lab draws, and so much more.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our courteous staff with any inquiries.
Certified Nurse Aides/Home Health Aides assist with the activities of daily living. They help provide the care necessary for one to function on a day to day basis that are unable to perform daily activities on their own.
