The Swing Bed Program provides a unique opportunity for health care providers to care for their patients who may require additional rehabilitation after an illness or injury following a three day acute hospitalization at Floyd County Medical Center or another hospital. We will provide specialized care to aid in recovery and prepare you for an appropriate discharge.
Some examples of Swing Bed Services are speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, daily dressing changes with our wound and ostomy nurses, and intravenous medication therapy.
Certain criteria must be met prior to a swing bed admission. The Swing Bed length of stay is determined by the patient’s progression toward set goals, daily participation in therapies, and a reevaluation by your health care provider. Swing Bed is usually covered by Medicare Part A or by private insurance. To learn more or to see if your stay qualifies under Swing Bed guidelines, call Patty Murray-Duckworth, Utilization Review RN, 641-228-6830 x 2480.
