National Skilled Nursing Care Week is underway. It runs from May 12 through May 18.
"Established by the American Health Care Association in 1967, National Skilled Nursing Care Week, formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, recognizes the role of skilled nursing care centers in administering to America’s senior citizens and individuals with disabilities," according to the American Health Care Association.
Wednesday, May 15, was also National Chocolate Chip Day.
In honor of those two big events, the Newswatch 16 morning team visited the nice people at Mountain View Care and Rehabilitation Center in Scranton on Wednesday.
