A level of care that must be given or supervised by registered nurses. All of an insured’s needs are taken care of with this type of service. Examples of skilled nursing care are intravenous injections, tube feeding, oxygen, and changing sterile dressings on a wound. Any service that could be safely done by an average nonmedical person (or the insured him-or herself) without the supervision of a registered nurse is not considered skilled care.
