Swing Bed Services
Dardanelle Regional is proud to offer Swing Bed services to patients who may need rehabilitation prior to returning home. Swing Bed is a Medicare program that allows hospital facilities to be used for in-patient acute care and then be transitioned to provide healthcare services that cannot be easily provided at home.
Patients who do not need to be hospitalized, but may benefit from rehabilitation with 24/7 nursing coverage can receive high-quality, compassionate care at Dardanelle Regional without having to visit another healthcare facility. During a patient’s stay, they will receive care from our nurses, case managers, activities director, and therapists. Our physicians will make rounds Monday thru Friday checking in on all your medical concerns and labs to ensure that you are receiving the best healthcare available with the goal of returning to your previous living arrangements.
If you have been in the hospital for a medical reason that requires you to stay 3 midnights and your physician feels that your are not ready to return to your previous way of living right away- you may be eligible to qualify for our swing bed program. Here you will receive daily care by our nursing staff, Physical, Occupational , Respiratory Therapy.
At Dardanelle Regional, Swing Bed patients often receive:
- IV therapy, wound care
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Respiratory therapy
- Speech therapy & Dietary consults (available through Conway Regional)
Length of Stay
The length of stay is dependent upon individual patient needs and progress toward recovery. Swing
Bed services are designed to empower patients to reach their highest potential for health and independence once they return home.
We do not provide transportation but make available opportunities for you to go to you appointments for other specialists that may be required outside of a hospital visit by doing a temporary leave of absence for a short period of time. In case of any medical emergency you will have direct immediate access to high level of care for life sustaining measures.
