Genesis Skilled Services
Skilled Nursing - Our Patient Care Coordinator will assess body systems on initial visit followed by the coordination of the patient plan of care to all team members. The Patient Care Coordinator is also responsible for monitoring patient’s progress and will regularly communicate with physician, pharmacist and other team members. Our team of RN’s are dedicated to teach and advise the patient and family members until patient independence has been reached.
