Skilled Nursing Facility

A Skilled Nursing Facility or nursing home is a health care
facility or a distinct part of a hospital which provides
continuous custodial and supportive care to patients
whose primary need is skilled nursing care on an
extended basis. These facilities provide 24-hour inpatient
care and, at a minimum, include a physician, skilled
nursing staff, dietary and pharmaceutical services, and
an activity program.

All nursing homes in California are licensed by the
California Department of Public Health (DPH), and must
meet California nursing home standards. In addition to
being licensed, nursing homes which choose to
participate in the Medicare and Med-Cal programs must
be certified by the federal government in order to qualify
for payments from these programs. Federally certified
facilities must meet federal standards as well as the
California requirements. Most California nursing homes
are certified to participate in both Medicare and Medi-Cal.
