Skilled Nursing

Care provided by licensed nursing teams.

Skilled Care refers to extended inpatient hospital-type care requiring the expertise of licensed medical personnel or therapist on a daily basis.

Sub-acute Care
is a very high level of care provided by NHC that offers a step-down unit for patients who have been in intensive care. Patients severely injured in automobile accidents, with spinal cord injuries, or with other trauma injuries benefit from NHC's intensively caring and highly skilled approach to treatment.
The sub-acute care at NHC includes specialized care such as rehabilitation and pain management. The environment at NHC is more like home and much less stressful than at other healthcare facilities. This is beneficial to both patients and their families.

Planning and careful coordination of rehabilitative therapies can begin at NHC early in the patient's care. The healing and rehabilitative process is improved by the teamwork and interaction among NHC's skilled nursing staff and multi-disciplined therapists.

The staff manages patients under a doctor's care in these specialized areas:
  • Wound Management
  • Pain Management
  • Case Management
  • IV Therapy
  • Restorative Nursing
  • Diabetic Management
  • Respite Care
The nursing staff takes a multi-disciplined approach to care planning. The emphasis is on setting the stage for rehabilitative therapy through maintaining the patient's health and motivating the patient.

The significance of the nursing staff goes far beyond the broad range of skills, technical expertise, and specialized training they bring to NHC. The loving, caring atmosphere that they create is the heart of the healing process.

Our team works closely with each patient's physician to formulate a personalized plan to enhance the rehabilitative process and improve the patient's physical, mental and emotional health. Whether provided for several weeks or several months, our skilled health care services are designed to complement a hospital stay or in many cases be a substitute for a continued one.
