Facility Checklist

Skilled Nursing Facility Checklist

Selecting a skilled facility for yourself or a loved one is a stressful process. If time allows, we encourage you and/or your family to take a tour of the facility of choice before admission. There are lots of questions you might have so we have created a list that you may use as a guide to make this process a little easier.

The Checklist

  • Is the facility accepting new residents?
  • Is the facility easy to visit for family and friends?
  • Does the facility have physicians that come to the facility?
  • Does the facility have the services I need?
