Skilled Nursing FAQs

It’s the treatment of acute illness. When a senior’s medical needs have progressed to where they can’t be met at home or in outpatient care, Skilled Nursing offers the practical answer. Typically, Skilled Nursing includes a host of medical professionals and therapists delivering a resident-specific program of health services, 24/7. It’s worth noting that Short-term Rehabilitation is a specialized Skilled Nursing service, that usually operates within or adjacent to the Skilled Nursing area – because it relies on many of the same professionals for treatment.

Staff members include RNs (registered nurses), nurse practitioners, a full-time life enrichment coordinator, a consultant dietitian and a variety of certified specialists. Skilled Nursing, both short- and long-term, is provided on site at PineCrest.
