Chamber’s Memorial Hospital’s Swing Bed Program is a skilled care program that offers admission to patients who require rehabilitating, transitional care following a hospital stay, acute surgery, or illness. Swing bed programs allow patients who were hospitalized, or had surgery performed at another healthcare facility, to transfer to their community hospital and receive skilled care close to home during their recovery.
Stays are anticipated to be short term and can be utilized for a variety of conditions including but not limited to stroke, heart disease, joint replacement, and other surgeries, respiratory diseases, and extended antibiotic therapy.
Benefits of our Swing Bed Program:
- Recovery in a safe and secure environment close to home
- Skilled nurses and physicians available 24 hours a day
- Access to healthcare specialists, including physical therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, and dieticians
- Coordinated team services provided to help address nutrition, pain and medical management while your strength and function improve enough to return home
Our Swing Bed Coordinator and Social Worker help arrange Home Health and therapy services for patients who require additional care upon returning home.
