What is Skilled Nursing?

Skilled nursing is a specialized treatment and care of patients’ needs that licensed nurses perform at a unique care nursing or rehabilitation facility. This care is generally available at assisted living communities, nursing homes, hospitals, and registered rehabilitation facilities like Island Nursing. Skilled nursing centers provide 24/7 assistance to the patients, including complete healthcare and daily living activities.

To determine whether you or your loved one need skilled nursing, you need to consider your or your loved one’s care needs. Nursing and Rehab Center provides the highest levels of professional nursing care that you can find in the region. It is suitable for you or your loved one if there is a requirement of round-the-clock professional care and expert assistance with routine tasks.

Our Skilled Nursing Services

Island Nursing and Rehab Center is a non-profit, fully equipped skilled nursing facility. We provide a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art healthcare and rehabilitation services. Our advanced skilled nursing services are targeted towards patients with short and long-term special care and assistance needs.

Sub-Acute Care

Sub-acute care is a skilled nursing service suitable for those recovering from a senior injury or who are critically ill. We provide quality round-the-clock care until patients stabilize and ready to move to a lower level of care or discharge.

Long-Term Care

Our long-term care services are suitable for those patients who need 24 hours supervision and hands-on care of skilled professionals but do not need the hospital’s level of care. We recommend it for patients with chronic conditions, which limit their independent living and mobility, cognitive disorders, or neurological conditions.

Wound care

At Island Nursing and Rehab Center, our expert wound care services prevent infections and help in speedy recovery with reduced scarring. Patients who have undergone surgeries need special wound care, especially if the wound does not start healing after two weeks.

Intravenous (IV) therapy

IV therapy enables quick and efficient administration of emergency drugs, pain management medication, anesthesia, nutrients, fluids, antibiotics, and other essential fluids. Our expert skilled nursing staff can administer medications through IV therapy to address various health conditions of patients.

Ostomy Care

Ostomy care is a specialized procedure that involves the creation of a stoma surgically on the abdomen. It helps in removing toxic body wastes. The stoma opens into a prosthetic ‘ostomy bag’ or ‘pouch’ outside or inside the patient’s body. Those patients who have this bag need special care to prevent infections and contamination.

Pain Management

The main goal of pain management services is to manage and remove pain sources and provide analgesia. Our skilled nursing in Holtsville, NY, has extensive experience in pain management. We strive to eliminate pain or control pain sources while providing appropriate analgesics according to the patient’s needs.


Patients who suffer from chronic or acute failure of kidneys need dialysis. This specialized medical procedure requires expert monitoring and care.
