Swing Bed

Rehabilitation Stays at Our Meagher County, Montana Hospital

Do you need skilled healthcare services in White Sulphur Springs? Swing bed care may be able to give you the healthcare you need once acute hospital care is no longer necessary, but you still need services not easily provided in your home surroundings. Our swing bed program is designed to help you reach your highest potential for independence prior to returning home from the hospital.

Services included in the swing bed program include:

  • IV medication therapy

  • Wound care

  • Rehabilitative services

  • Post-acute hospital care

Who Is Eligible for the Swing Bed Program?

Patients often don’t know they continue to need care after an acute injury or illness places them in our hospital. Don’t worry. Most patients need about 1 to 2 weeks of additional care, typically no more than 40 days.

Once you are in the swing bed program, your eligibility will be continually evaluated to remain in the program. A multi-disciplinary group from within the hospital meets every week to discuss and evaluate your plan of care. You must continue to be making wellness progress until you are ready to be discharged home.

To be eligible for admission, you must:

  • Have been at the acute care center immediately before entering the swing bed program

  • Be medically stable and no longer in critical condition

  • Require daily skilled care for 5 days per week in rehab, directly related to your acute care hospitalization

  • Participate in Medicare Part A or some other qualified insurance plan

  • Discuss this with your doctor

We also offer swing bed stays to patients from hospitals outside of Meagher County.
