b. “No, Medicare will not cover either of these ongoing therapies.”
c. “Medicare will cover the ventilator therapy, but it does not cover the insulin
injections.”
d. “Medicare will cover the ongoing insulin therapy, but it does not cover a highly

2. The wife of a patient asks the nurse whether her husband would be considered for placement
in a skilled nursing care facility when he is discharged from the general hospital. The patient
is incontinent, has mild dementia but is able to ambulate with a walker, and must have help to
eat and dress himself. What is the nurse’s most appropriate response?
a. “Yes, your husband would qualify for a skilled care facility because of his inability
to feed and dress himself.”
b. “No, your husband’s disabilities would not qualify him for a skilled facility.”
c. “Yes, your husband qualifies for placement in a skilled care facility because of his
dementia.”
d. “Yes, anyone who is willing to pay can be placed in a skilled nursing facility.”
ANS: B
Placement in a skilled nursing facility must be authorized by a physician. A clear need for
rehabilitation must be evident, or severe deficits in self-care that have a potential for
improvement and require the services of a registered nurse, a physical therapist, or a speech
therapist must exist.
