Skilled nursing services are an important part of the care we provide at our communities throughout Ohio.
All of our skilled nursing communities offer a variety of care types, including:
Short-term care- multi-day or multi-week care for individuals recovering from injury or illness and transitioning into home care or an extended care community.
Long-term care- extended care for those who need daily assistance with eating, bathing, dressing, and getting around. These needs can arise as a result of compound disabilities, memory impairment and/or chronic illness.
Respite care- half-day or full-day care that allows home care providers to run errands, attend events, or even take a vacation.
What is Skilled Nursing Care?
Skilled Nursing Care describes the medical services our care team provides to our residents. Skilled nursing care may be necessary for your loved one following a hospital stay for an illness or injury, or on a long-term basis.
Our staff physicians work closely with our patients' doctors and our staff nurses to deliver the same kind of care you'd expect in a hospital environment. Our nursing staff can tend to post-operative wounds, oversee the dispensing of medications, deliver infusion treatments, and provide support for chronic conditions such as:
- Alzheimer's disease
- Heart disease
- Ostomy conditions
We also have the personnel to deliver physical, occupational and speech therapies, including post-stroke therapy, on site. And like other care communities, we provide custodial care, including help with eating, dressing and other daily activities.
Embassy's Skilled Nursing Qualifications
In order to call our communities skilled nursing facilities, we have to meet a strict set of qualifications set by the federal government and the state of Ohio, including:
- Nursing staff levels
- 24-hour LPN or RN availability
- Nursing staff qualifications
Each member of our nursing team has completed the necessary education to earn their nursing degree and licensure, and participated in continuing education to maintain their credentials. Several members of our care team also have additional training in specialized areas such as pulmonary and cardiac nursing care.
