Skilled Nursing Services

Skilled Nursing ServicesVNA of Cape Cod nurses provide assistance to patients needing skilled or specialized nursing care for the treatment of their medical condition. Our nurses develop a plan of care to meet the patient's individual needs. The nurse will coordinate the home care program specifically tailored to result in the patient's ability to manage his/her needs and remain safely at home.

Some common skilled-nursing services are changing dressings, caring for wounds, giving injections and inserting IV's. Our expertise has proven successful in helping patients:

  • Avoid complications
  • Teach self-care techniques for cardiac and respiratory disease management, diabetes management, wound, ostomy and catheter care
  • Reduce chances of being re-admitted to the hospital
  • Achieve optimal recovery
  • Arrange for additional services as needed

Our services are coordinated with the patient's physician, our nursing staff and family members who are involved with the patient's care.
