Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care, provided by Cornerstone Home Health, that must be provided by trained individuals. This type of care is performed by registered nurses (RNs) and Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). Services are typically necessary over the short term for rehabilitation of an illness or injury, or over the long term for patients who need care on a frequent or around-the-clock basis due to a chronic medical condition. Skilled nursing needs include, but are not limited to, wound care, intravenous (IV) therapy, injections rehabilitation, tube feedings, rapidly changing health status, and monitoring of vital signs and medical equipment.
