Nursing & Rehabilitative Care
All nursing facilities require the professional skills for a registered or licensed practical nurse.
Nursing services include assessment, treatments, injections, coordination of care, and medication administration.
Rehabilitative services such as post-hospital stroke, heart or orthopedic care are available in addition to related services such as respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech therapy.
Dental services, dietary consultation, laboratory, X-ray, and pharmaceutical services are also available.
Sub-Acute Medical Care
Residents in nursing facilities are under the care of physicians, who visit regularly and are responsible for the residents’ overall plan of care.
Physicians certify the need for nursing care and may serve as a resource for information about post-acute care facilities in the community. When individuals enter the facility, physicians write orders for necessary medication and play a role in the development of the residents’ care plan, including restorative and rehabilitative procedures, special diets and treatments. Every nursing facility has a contracted physician on call to handle emergencies.
Personal care is provided to residents who need help with various activities. Such assistance most often relates to performance of activities of daily living (ADLs), which includes eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, personal hygiene. Certified nurse assistants provide many of these services.
Covenant Care has 4 facilities that provide Residential Services. Each facility provides general supervision services, such as room and board, and a planned program for the social and spiritual needs of the resident.
