Swing Bed Program

The Swing Bed Program is an intensive program that is designed to help Medicare individuals who no longer need acute hospital care, but need some short- term rehabilitation before safely returning home. This program allows your physician to change or “swing” your level of care from acute to skilled rehabilitation while remaining in the hospital. The goal of this program is to implement a structured multi-disciplinary plan of care that promotes your maximum independence and self care.

Swing Bed Program

Common diagnoses treated in this program include patients with extended IV therapy needs, orthopedic surgeries (hip replacements, fractures, post-surgical procedures), neurological disorders (stroke), and generalized weakness due to CHF, COPD, pneumonia, and other chronic conditions.

While in this program the interdisciplinary team meets weekly to address each patient’s progress and set realistic goals that will be met through the use of nursing services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other clinical services.

The Community Hospital of Bremen is pleased to offer this service to this community and we look forward to serving you and your family. If you have further questions or would like more information on this program, you may contact the Swing Bed Liaison at 574-546-8128.
