Skilled Swingbed

At Sumner County Hospital District #1, patients do not have to have to be physically moved to a different room or unit when they are transferred from acute bed status to skilled bed status. For our patients’ convenience, they remain in their own rooms if their status changes. We found that changing patients to “skilled” status and allowing patients to stay in the same room provides may benefits including:

More time to recover following an illness or surgery

Less expensive care than an acute hospitalization

Helps to keep patients oriented to surroundings and staff

Reduces the possibility of lost items

Reduces relocation confusion for friends and family

As Patients progress, one factor that always remains constant is the devoted attention of our highly skilled nursing staff
