Skilled Nursing Visits
Some of the typical client needs for skilled nursing visits include:
- Wound care
- Medication management
- Diabetic teaching and management
- Recovery from an illness or injury
Physical therapists evaluate daily activities—transferring from one location to another (e.g., from bed to wheelchair), walking and stair training—with a focus on safety, mobility, balance and endurance. They also provide progressive strengthening, balance and fall prevention strategies.
Occupational therapists assess self-care skills such as dressing, bathing and eating, as well as more complex tasks such as meal preparation, light housekeeping and adaptive self-care techniques.
Speech therapists assess and treat speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, fluency and other related disorders, and treat speech, language and swallowing disorders.
Home health aides work under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or therapist. Home health aides have received specialized training or certification as a home health aide, and meet state of Minnesota standards. Some examples of what a home health aide can assist with are:
- Personal care: bathing, grooming, oral hygiene, shaving, hair/skin/nail care and dressing
- Stand-by assistance with walking, transfers or a home exercise program set up by a therapist.
