Skilled Nursing Services
A service that must be provided by a registered nurse, or a licensed practical (vocational) nurse under the supervision of a registered nurse, to be safe and effective. In determining whether a service requires the skills of a nurse, consider both the inherent complexity of the service, the condition of the patient and accepted standards of medical and nursing practice. Some services may be classified as a skilled nursing service on the basis of complexity alone, and if reasonable and necessary to the treatment of the patient's illness or injury, would be covered on that basis. However, in some cases the condition of the patient may cause a service that would ordinarily be considered unskilled to be considered a skilled nursing service. This would occur when the patient's condition is such that the service can be safely and effectively provided only by a nurse. Our skilled nursing services consist of the following: Medication Management Wound Care – proper management by treating and monitoring wounds that are the result of disease, injury or medical treatment. Intravenous Therapy – will not provide chemotherapy or blood Tracheostomy Care – consisting of the maintenance of a patient’s airway, adequate humidification, aseptic wound care, and sterile tracheal aspiration.
