Swing Bed (or Skilled Nursing Care) is a Medicare program designed to provide additional inpatient care to those needing extra time to heal or strengthen. The term “Swing Bed” refers the the use of hospital beds for either acute or skilled nursing care. Our Swing Bed Program offers a much needed service for patients who no longer need acute hospital care, but do need skilled nursing or therapy care to complete their recovery.
RNs, LPNs, nurse aides, social services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, registered dietician, and an activities director staff Covington County Hospital’s swing bed program.
