Hey everyone, it’s Karl with the Big 65 Medicare Insurance Services and I hope you are having a great week.
Today, I want to talk about preparing for a positive outcome if you end up in a skilled nursing facility.
If you have outpatient surgery or a hospital surgery, and the post follow up care requires time in a skilled nursing facility, make sure you plan for that in advance.
Know where you are going. Make sure you have a case manager set up as well as the name of a social worker. Accountability and having a plan of action in advance of visiting that skilled nursing facility will make a huge difference in the outcome and your return to the activities of daily living.
Remember, proper planning prevents poor performance :).
That’s it for this week.
