Swing Bed Program

Perkins County Health Service's (PCHS) Swing Bed program focuses on rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to prepare patients for a safer, healthier return to their previous living situation following an illness or injury.

Services in the Swing Bed program include nursing care, rehabilitation, nutritional therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy and case management.

PCHS's program helps patients recover from major surgery, joint replacement, vascular or abdominal procedures, a major accident or stroke. Swing Bed can also help with pain management, or wound treatment for wounds that are not healing or that may need special care.

To qualify, patients must be under the supervision of a physician, require daily skilled services, and have a three-day acute hospital stay prior to entering the Swing Bed program.

Swing Bed services are available through Medicare Part A. Other insurances may also cover Swing Bed services.
