Swing Bed Program at Livingston HealthCare
What Is the Swing Bed Program?
Swing bed care bridges the gap between your hospital stay and returning
home. When you no longer require full hospitalization but still need additional
medically-supervised services, you can remain at the hospital for swing bed care.
This solution is ideal for those patients who need:
- Frequent testing
- Regular observation
- Physical monitoring
Transitional Care and Support at Livingston HealthCare
A physician referral is required for admission to swing bed care, and patients
must meet certain Medicare requirements. This program is designed to be
transitional and to provide needed care in a safe setting. We are more
than happy to answer any questions you might have at this time. To make
your stay more comfortable, we encourage you to bring items from home,
and visitors are welcome at any time of the day.
