Heart Failure and Skilled Nursing Facilities: The Importance of Getting the Facts

For many people diagnosed with heart failure — which almost invariably results in a hospital stay — the next stop is a skilled nursing facility. While their physician often will reassure them that it’s just for a short time until they can get back to their home, in reality, that stay is long (averaging 144 days). And often they find themselves back in the hospital and back to a nursing facility again.
