What is a “Swing Bed” Program?

This is a Medicare program designed to provide additional skilled care to those needing extra time to heal before returning home.

The Swing Bed unit allows patients to move from acute care to skilled rehabilitation within the same location as their acute care stay. This ensures continuity of care for patients who require nursing care by keeping them with the same doctors, nurses, and therapists.
