What Is a Skilled Nursing Facility

Camelot Senior Living

Our facilities have staff on duty 24 hours a day to help individuals with whatever they may need. This assistance ranges from simple daily activities like getting dressed in the morning, to more advanced medical, such as wound care. We have a licensed physician that supervises each resident’s care as well as therapy services available including speech, occupational, and physical therapy.

Many times patients go to a skilled nursing facility after being released from the hospital so that they can recover or heal from an injury, illness, or surgery. They remain at skilled nursing facilities until they are well-enough to go home. More often than not, skilled nursing facilities meet the criteria for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, making this type of care available for many patients.
