Post-acute, or “swing bed,” care is for inpatients who no longer need acute care, but are not ready for discharge. Patients do not need to transfer to another hospital unit or facility. Swing bed promotes more patient comfort and better outcomes. Often, the patient can remain in their current room for post-acute care. This may include rehabilitation, infusion and wound care services.
