A nursing home is a facility for the residential care of elderly or disabled people. Nursing homes may also be referred to as skilled nursing facilities, seniors’ homes, rest homes, convalescent homes or convalescent care. Often, these terms have slightly different meanings to indicate whether the homes are public or private, and whether they provide mostly assisted living or nursing care and emergency medical care.
Nursing homes are used by people who do not need to be in a hospital, but cannot be cared for at home. The nursing home facility nurses have the responsibilities of caring for the patients’ medical needs and also the responsibility of being in charge of other employees, depending on their ranks. Most nursing homes have nursing aides and skilled nurses on hand 24 hours a day.
The cost of preparing the PFA for a Nursing Home is based on the maximum number of patients that the home is approved for. Contact us for a quote.
