Skilled Nursing Facility is denying therapy "would not improve their functional ability."

How do I counter the assertion by the administrator, social worker, and case worker in a Skilled Nursing Facility that therapy is denied becaus it will not improve functional ability?

    Are you living in the skilled nursing facility? Do you want to be there? What state are you in? There may be nonprofit legal organizations that can assist you, and also your local Independent Living Center may be able to assist if you want to move out of the facility and into the community.

    Very Complicated subject- PT Is a Physical Therapy induced movement of the body functions that help keep your body and muscles bowels-bladder-peace of mind exercised. Your Doctor-Patient relationship and your concerns to your doctor are really important so your doctor can evaluate regular check-ups and by PT referral can/must prescribe PT in order for you to continue receiving PT whether in home or care facility-
