WHEN IS IT NEEDED?

Seniors in Pittsburgh typically need this type of rehabilitation care when they are suffering from a serious medical condition. A licensed registered nurse is required to be present in the nursing home at all times to provide a more intensive care and treatment to patients who are in need of complex medical care, including seniors who have injuries, disabilities, serious illness or those recovering for surgery.

 

COSTS

The average cost of Nursing Homes in Pittsburgh is $ 8273 per month (source: Genworth Financial). Generally in Pennsylvania, Skilled Nursing in is more expensive than Assisted Living as it requires licensed professionals and more medical equipment to sustain a patient’s high level of medical care needs.

 

PAYING FOR CARE

Paying for Nursing Care can be very expensive especially if the stay is longer than anticipated. Due to the high nursing home costs in Pittsburgh, patients typically utilize their Medicare or Medicaid benefits. Medicare or Medicaid will only pay for care services provided by certified nursing home facilities for a limited amount of time typically for 90 days.

However, for those patients who do not qualify for these government health programs, private insurance or private funds are used. Some sources may include the patient’s retirement savings, help from family members or long term care insurance. If none if these are available, it’s best to contact Medicare (www.medicare.gov) or Pennsylvania’s Office of Long-Term Living, Bureau of Provider Support, Division of Licensing for more options.

 

LICENSING

Pittsburgh Nursing Homes are licensed, inspected and regulated by the Department of Public Health, regulated by the state and the federal government and are certified by Medicare and Medicaid.

Pennsylvania Skilled Nursing facilities become certified only when they pass the state government agency inspection. These government agencies are responsible for having the administrators licensed, performing routine inspections, ensuring the facility is operating up to standards and checking that the residents are receiving good care.
