Our swingbed program offers an alternative to those patients who are in a transitional stage between levels of care. If you no longer meet the requirements to continue your stay at a hospital facility but are not ready to be discharged to home, home health, or the nursing home, swingbed might be for you. This program allows you to keep a high level of dedicated care with the comfort and convenience of being close to home and more accessible to your support network.
Swingbed offers 24/7 nursing care and an assigned physician as well as administration of medications and meals. Radiologic and lab testing is available to swingbed patients as needed. This program is referral based, so if you think that you may qualify you can talk to your current medical professional or hospital about what options are available to you. If you would like more information on the program itself you can contact Caldwell Medical Center directly.
