What is skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing is for seniors who need greater short-term care while recovering from illness, injury or a hospital stay, or for seniors who need long-term care for chronic conditions. Professional, compassionate support is delivered around-the-clock by licensed professionals, including RNs, LVNs and CNAs.
Skilled nursing requires daily involvement from licensed nursing and/or rehabilitation team members. Medicare will cover a portion of the cost of care. By contrast, assistance with basic activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, walking, etc.), is deemed custodial care and isn’t covered under Medicare.
When is skilled nursing necessary?
Skilled nursing is the right choice for seniors who need 24-hour attentive medical care but don’t have acute needs that require hospitalization or require memory care. It provides a higher level of care than assisted living, whether the senior needs rehabilitation services, more attentive assistance with routine activities, or long-term care.
Some conditions that require skilled nursing care include (but aren’t limited to) cardiac failure, late-stage Parkinson’s disease, stroke, hip or bone fracture, surgery recovery, etc.
Will Medicare pay for skilled nursing?
Casa de las Campanas is Medicare-certified. After a qualifying hospital stay, Medicare typically covers 1-20 days of skilled nursing. A daily coinsurance rate set by Medicare will be applied for days 21-100. Medicare payment rules are strict and vary depending on any number of factors. Out-of-pocket expenses may fluctuate based on additional insurance coverage you may have. Visit medicare.gov/coverage/skilled-nursing-facility-care for more details.
