Swing Bed Services

Swing Bed is 24 hour skilled nursing care plus the benefit of rehabilitation therapies to help patients transition to home or a long term care facility. Swing Bed can also be utilized to help rehabilitate from surgery, illness or an accident. It is like a bridge from the hospital before going home. It gives the patient time to heal and adjust before returning to everyday life. Our main purpose is to provide you the necessary care through a collaborative team approach, facilitating therapists and skilled nursing to obtain the optimal outcome possible.

Some examples of skilled care include:

Rehabilitation such as physical therapy, or occupational therapy

Rehabilitation following surgery or a stroke

IV Medication therapy following a stabilized illness

Continued wound management care

Pain management

Nutritional guidance

Whether you are an inpatient at St. Luke’s Hospital or an inpatient at another facility, you may be able to participate in the Swing Bed Program right here at home for your extended care needs keeping you close to friends and family and in the comfort of your own community.
