You might be wondering what “skilled nursing” means when it comes to home care. The term is directly related to the type of care that a patient is in need of at home. While many home care professionals can assist with day to day living tasks, skilled nurses provide treatment that can only be done by licensed nurses such as complex wound dressings, tube feedings, or monitoring rapidly changing health status.
