The wife of a patient asks the nurse whether her husband would be considered for placement in a skilled nursing care facility when he is discharged from the general hospital.

The nurse’s most appropriate reply is: 1. “Yes, your husband would qualify for a skilled care facility because of his inability to feed and dress himself.” 2. “No, your husband’s disabilities would not qualify him for a skilled facility.” 3. “Yes, because of his dementia your husband qualifies for placement in a skilled care facility.” 4. “Yes, anyone who is willing to pay can be placed in a skilled nursing facility.” ANS: 2 Placement in a skilled nursing facility must be authorized by the physician, there must be a clear need for rehabilitation or severe deficits in self-care that have a potential for improve- ment.
