Spotlight On: Swing Bed Services

  • Posted On:

Following an illness, injury, or surgery, some patients may require additional skilled care before returning home. Swing bed services offer personalized skilled nursing and rehabilitation to support these patients during their recovery journey. This month, we're highlighting swing bed services, which provide a seamless transition between hospital care and returning to the comfort of your home.

Swing bed services cater to patients who no longer require round-the-clock acute care but still need further rehabilitation or skilled nursing before they can safely return home. Our focus is on delivering high-quality care, ensuring families feel confident that their loved ones are receiving the support they need in a secure and compassionate environment.

Patients may require swing bed services for various reasons. Regardless of the cause, our team collaborates with them to develop an individualized care plan tailored to each person’s unique goals and needs. Swing bed services may include:

  • Skilled care, pain management and education.
  • Physical therapy to enhance strength, prevent falls, improve balance and flexibility and facilitate a return to daily activities.
  • Occupational therapy to address daily living skills.
  • Speech therapy to improve communication skills and safe swallowing.
  • Respiratory therapy to provide education on oxygen use and respiratory care.
  • Specialized wound care to promote healing and comfort.
  • Administration of IV medications and treatments by our clinical team.

As the patient meets their recovery goals and prepares to return home, our team facilitates a smooth transition by:

  • Connecting them with community resources.
  • Arranging in-home care services.
  • Providing education and guidance on necessary medical equipment and supplies for home use.
  • Assisting in finding appropriate living arrangements if needed.

The ultimate objective of swing bed services is to empower our patients to resume their daily lives and engage in the activities they love at home.
