Swing Bed is 24-hour skilled nursing care plus the benefit of rehabilitation therapies to help patients transition to their home or a long term care facility. Swing bed can also be used to help recover from surgery, illness or an accident.
Swing bed is used for the patient to stay in one hospital location before going home. The patient is not being moved from one location to another, giving them time to heal and adjust before returning to everyday life.
The Medical Center at Franklin will provide the necessary care through a team approach using the appropriate therapists and skilled nursing to achieve the best patient outcome.
