Nursing Care Services
Skilled nursing care often refers to the care provided to a patient by licensed nurses during a short post hospital stay at a skilled nursing facility. Our licensed nurses are available 24 hours a day to care for patients requiring treatment for intravenous therapy, tube feeding, daily medication management and training, monitoring and treatment of changing health status, complex wound care, and more.
Rehabilitative nursing care often involves working with a patient to teach them how to monitor, manage and live with their diagnoses. This includes medication management teaching, wound care teaching, feeding tube management, and helping to provide a general layman’s understanding of diagnoses.
Respite nursing care refers to care provided to patients, usually referred to as residents, that reside in the facility for a short respite stay or on longer term basis. These residents receive all of the same benefits of 24 hour licensed nursing care as above mentioned, but often don’t have the rapidly changing health status as someone just discharging from a hospital.
Wounds can have many degrees of severity. Lincoln Crawford has a team of nurses and therapists who focus on the healing of wounds, whether acquired during a surgery or procedure, general skin breakdown, or from an infection. Our team is able to provide a variety of treatments, and are constantly assessing the healing process and brainstorming the best way to comfortably, safely and quickly heal a wound. This includes negative pressure wound care and IV therapies. Please refer to our rehabilitation page for additional information on how our therapy team is involved with this care.
Lincoln Crawford offers an Antibiotic Stewardship program that is designed to make sure our residents that are on Antibiotics are on the proper regime for their infection. The program is a cutting edge approach to cut down on the over use of Antibiotics and the threat that poses with Antibiotic resistant infections.
