Transitional Care / Skilled Swing Bed

Transitional Care, also known as Swing Bed, is for patients who are ready to be discharged from a traditional acute-care hospital but aren't quite ready to go home. These patients still require additional skilled medical care, nursing care, or rehabilitation services.
