Swing bed patients temporarily use a hospital room for nursing home care until they are ready for discharge to their home or can be transferred to an available nursing home or assisted living facility. Swing beds provide 24-hour medical and nursing services for the patient who no longer requires hospital specialized acute care, but still requires “skilled care” as given in a skilled nursing home.
Discharge planning will be provided to assist you in preparing for your transition from the skilled nursing facility to home.
