Swing Bed ProgramThe Swing Bed Program at Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital provides a unique opportunity to maintain continuity of care, following an acute illness, through adequate medical supervision by highly trained and qualified staff. The patient can receive Swing Bed Services in the same room without transfer to another facility.
A number of services are available through the Swing Bed Program including:
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
- Wound Care
- Respiratory Therapy
- IV Antibiotic Therapy
The key benefits of this program are ready access to the physician and ability to learn self-care skills that increase independence, decrease anxiety, and promotes a natural transition to the home setting.
During a patient's stay, family and friends are encouraged to visit, giving the emotional support necessary to well-being and recovery.
