If you or your loved one is recovering from an illness, injury, or hospitalization, your doctor may recommend receiving follow-up care at a skilled nursing facility. Skilled nursing facilities are temporary residential facilities that offer around-the clock medical care and rehabilitation on short- and long-term basis to help people recover from an illness, injury, or hospital stay. Receiving care at a skilled nursing facility that best addresses your needs can improve your health outcomes, decrease your healthcare costs, and lower the chance that you will be readmitted to the hospital due to health complications.

This video will help you better understand skilled nursing so you can make informed decisions about post-hospital care.
