Nursing Care Services
Skilled nursing care often refers to the care provided to a patient by licensed nurses during a 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.
Intermediate nursing care refers to care provided to patients, usually referred to as residents, that reside in the facility for a 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. Cedars of Lebanon 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.
Behavioral Health Care
Our team works together with residents’ primary care physicians and facility staff to provide treatment for each resident’s unique mental health needs and offers support and education for facility staff, as well as help for family members and loved ones.
Cedars of Lebanon offers care to those suffering from mental illnesses, such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and dementia.
