Swing-Bed ServicesIn addition to acute inpatient care, CCMH also offers a Medicare swing-bed program. Patients require swing-bed care when they have health problems requiring daily nursing attention but not the full range of hospital services available for acute care patients. Swing-bed care typically is of a rehabilitative nature following an acute care hospitalization and before discharge to home or a nursing home.
The program is ideal for patients who have completed an acute hospitalization in an out-of-town hospital and still require some form of skilled care. Through the swing-bed program, individuals who meet the required criteria can be transferred back to CCMH, their local hospital, to be closer to home and family.
