Swing Bed Program
Memorial Hospital’s Swing Bed program provides a wide range of interdisciplinary rehabilitation services to patients with short term rehabilitation and medical needs. Following a qualified three-night acute-care stay, patients may be referred by physicians, acute care hospitals or other health care professional, for admission to swing bed status. Our swing bed team will meet with the patient to evaluate their condition and level of function. The team will assess the patient’s needs, plan treatment and establish an estimated time frame to meet the team’s goals. Family members are an integral part of the treatment team. They are involved in decision making, made aware of daily progress and are also invited to participate in our tri-weekly interdisciplinary patient care meetings.
