Surgery can be an unpleasant topic of discussion, especially when it’s regarding your loved one. Unfortunately, surgeries like knee and hip replacements are a normal part of aging. The good news is if your loved one does have an upcoming surgery scheduled, there are a variety of services available to them to help aide their recovery.
While your loved one might have a long journey ahead of them, services like skilled nursing and therapies can have a huge impact on their recovery and help them get back to what they enjoy doing sooner.
You may be wondering to yourself – what exactly is skilled nursing? Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care that is provided by licensed health professionals such as registered nurses and therapists.
Skilled nursing services are available for your loved one after they undergo a surgery and are not quite ready to go home. Skilled nursing services can be necessary over the short term for rehabilitation from an illness or injury and can also be required over the long term if your loved one requires a high level of care on a constant basis.
Skilled nursing services include a variety of different treatments. If your loved one enters skilled nursing after a surgery, they can receive services like wound care, IV therapy, injections, physical therapy, medication management and monitoring of vital signs and medical equipment.
In order to receive skilled nursing services, your loved one’s doctor must order the care. At Saint Simeon’s, we are proud to offer skilled nursing services under Medicare Part A.
