In addition to rehabilitation services, skilled care refers to care that must be provided by a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse. These individuals are on duty 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
In addition, South Roanoke Nursing Home’s team of Certified Nursing Assistants are well-trained to provide the quality of care you should expect. Some examples of skilled care would be tube feeding, injections, or a complex condition that would require careful and continuous monitoring by a trained nurse.
Note: Medicare usually pays for skilled care up to a maximum of 100 days at a nursing home in Roanoke, Va.
