Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Facilities

Nursing homes are considered when the level of care needed includes skilled nursing care, 24 hour personal care, and/or assistance with moving from bed to chair (“two-person transfer”). Sometimes temporary rehabilitation care in a nursing home or rehabilitation center is necessary to follow-up after surgery or a major health event. Most nursing homes are based on a medical model of care, with an emphasis on medical care and various therapies, (occupational, physical and recreational), as well as social support. There is a licensed nurse on duty at all times. Most are for-profit organizations, while some are non-profit. Nursing homes are licensed and regulated by the State of New Jersey. Fees are covered by private pay, Medicaid and/or health insurance, including Medicare and long-term care insurance.

 

Acute rehabilitation is generally located in a hospital. The patient is under the care of a physiatrist who directs the team of rehabilitation professionals.  They provide around-the-clock intensive rehabilitation up to three hours a day, six days a week.

Sub-acute rehabilitation takes place in a skilled nursing or rehabilitation facility. It is less intense and less comprehensive. Patients must be able to actively participate in three hours of rehabilitation per day and expect to return home in 2-4 weeks.

The New Jersey Health & Senior Services www.state.nj.us/health/healthfacilities/guide/inspect.shtml and the Medicare website http://medicare.gov lists local facilities and their most recent state inspection performance.
