Los Angeles Jewish Health skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) provide 24-hour nursing supervision and comprehensive medical care. Patients' services at our skilled nursing facilities are crucial to recovery following hospitalization. This is also referred to as transitional care as it continues the recovery that began in the hospital and prepares patients to be stronger and safer when they return home. It is a benefit for Medicare members, and most managed care health plans cover it.
Individuals go home when they have met their goals or are no longer in need of the services that cannot be provided at home. Most commonly, people stay 2-4 weeks. In the program outlined below, medical services are typically covered by Medicare and other health plans if a person has been in the hospital for three nights.
