Nursing Facilities

What Is A Nursing Facility?

A nursing facility is a health care institution for patients that require short or long-term nursing assistance or rehabilitation. These centers primarily provide three types of services:

  • Skilled nursing or medical care and related services
  • Rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness
  • Long-term care: health-related care and services not available in the community, needed regularly due to a mental or physical condition

There are two primary types of nursing centers. A “skilled nursing facility” is typically a temporary residence for patients undergoing rehabilitation treatment. They provide patients with the care and services of licensed nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists and audiologists. A “nursing home” is often a more permanent residence for people in need of around-the-clock custodial care.
