A registered nurse (RN) or a licensed vocational nurse (LVN) can provide skilled nursing services. If you get services from an LVN, your care will be supervised by an RN. Home health nurses provide direct care and teach you and your caregivers about your care. They also manage, observe, and evaluate your care. Examples of skilled nursing care include: giving IV drugs, certain injections, or tube feedings; changing wound dressings; and teaching about prescription drugs or diabetes care. Any service that could be done safely and effectively by a non-medical person (or by yourself) without the supervision of a nurse isn’t skilled nursing care.
