In Home Skilled Care. What is That?

What is Skilled Nursing Care?


Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care that must be provided by trained individuals, such as registered nurses (RNs) and physical, speech, and occupational therapists. These services can be necessary over the short term for rehabilitation from an illness or injury, or they may be required over the long term for patients who need care on a frequent or around-the-clock basis due to a chronic medical condition. Examples of skilled nursing services include wound care, intravenous (IV) therapy, injections, physical therapy, and monitoring of vital signs and medical equipment.

As more seniors choose to age in place, home health agencies have responded by offering skilled services provided by licensed nurses or therapists in clients’ homes. When prescribed by a doctor, these short-term skilled care services can be covered by Medicare, some private health insurance policies, veteran’s benefits, and long-term care insurance policies. Utilizing a home health care provider enables an individual to receive highly effective medical treatment while remaining as independent as possible in the comfort of their own home.
