SKILLED NURSING

SKILLED NURSING

In many ways, the nurse is the center of the home health medical team. A nurse (or in some cases a therapist) will be assigned as “case manager” for your care. He or she coordinates the plan of care your doctor has prescribed for you with you and other members of your team to get you the best care possible and ensure that your goals are met.
