ORMC’s Skilled Nursing Unit (SNU) is equipped with 15 beds and offers a transitional setting for patients who are medically stable enough to be discharged from a hospital setting but who still need additional services for a short time. These services may include:
IV Fluids or Medications
Physical, Occupational or Speech/Language Therapy
ORMC’s SNU is a short-stay, hospital-based skilled nursing unit. By being located within the hospital, our Skilled Nursing Unit offers the advantage of facilitating physician involvement and affords easier access to medical testing and emergency medical support than what may be offered at a community-based facility.
The SNU accepts referrals from Oconee Regional Medical Center and, as bed availability permits, from other health facilities. A physician must certify that there is a medical need for a SNU admission. Physicians see SNU residents as needed, but not necessarily on a daily basis.
ORMC’s SNU is conveniently located on the fourth floor of ORMC’s Cobb Tower and offers private rooms with free parking for family and visitors.
