What Is a Skilled Nursing Facility?

A skilled nursing facility is an in-patient rehabilitation and medical treatment center staffed with trained medical professionals. They provide the medically-necessary services of licensed nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and audiologists.

Skilled nursing facilities give patients round-the-clock assistance with healthcare and activities of daily living (ADLs). There are numerous federal regulations regarding what skilled nursing facilities can and cannot do.

    Typically, a skilled nursing facility is a temporary residence for patients undergoing medically-necessary rehabilitation treatment. A nursing home, on the other hand, is more often a permanent residence for people in need of custodial care 24/7. Some facilities are licensed for both.
