Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Skilled Nursing Facilities
Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are healthcare centers that provide round-the-clock medical and nursing care to individuals who require a higher level of assistance than can be provided at home or in assisted living facilities. They are often used as a transition between a hospital stay and return to home, or as a long-term care option for individuals with chronic conditions.
SNFs typically provide services such as:
Nursing care and medical management
Physical, occupational, and speech therapy
Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
Dietary and nutritional support
Social and recreational activities
Admission to a SNF typically requires a physician’s order and is covered by Medicare or Medicaid for certain conditions and time frames. It’s important for individuals and their families to carefully research and compare different SNFs to find one that best meets their needs and preferences.
