The role of a physical therapist in a skilled nursing facility is to promote, maintain and restore physical function within the neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, and the cardiopulmonary systems. When a patient is admitted, an evaluation is performed and a plan of care is established to improve their endurance, mobility, balance, and strength.
Due to the geriatric population being at high fall risk, neuromuscular interventions include static/dynamic balance for sitting and standing activities. This will decrease patient's falls and prevent further injuries. Interventions for patients with a recent stroke diagnosis would include intense training in the areas of bed mobility, transfers, and gait.
