Skilled Nursing Visits Support a Safe Care Plan at Home

Skilled Nursing Visits from PHS

There are times when a patient may be stable enough to go or remain at home, but still requires professional nursing visits. This may be to treat a specific condition or to ensure they are healing or growing appropriately. When those cases come up, physicians will order skilled nursing visits (SNV). This allows the patient to go home, where they’re most comfortable, but still have a safe care plan that ensures routine follow-up with a registered nurse.

With skilled nursing visits, an RN will come to your home to complete professional nursing tasks. The number of visits depends on the patient’s needs and physician orders.

  • Administration of medications, including Synagis
  • Clean and change dressings
