Ivinson Expands Swing Bed Program

Ear­li­er this year, Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hospital’s Board of Direc­tors approved plans for an expand­ed swing bed pro­gram at Ivinson. 

Ivinson’s Extend­ed Care Facil­i­ty (ECF) has tran­si­tioned from its pro­gram that housed two depart­ments (swing beds and skilled nurs­ing beds) to a sin­gu­lar swing bed program. 

This change will allow us to con­tin­ue to ele­vate the care of both acute care and long-term care patients,” said Chief Nurs­ing Offi­cer Nicole Rooney. All ECF staff has been retained through this tran­si­tion and pro­vid­ed addi­tion­al train­ing and sup­port to be successful.”

Begin­ning June 10, 2020, the 10 beds pre­vi­ous­ly licensed as skilled nurs­ing facil­i­ty beds under the Extend­ed Care Facil­i­ty tran­si­tioned to Ivinson’s swing bed pro­gram. Both acute and long-term patients will con­tin­ue to receive care with­in Ivinson’s swing bed program.

Our goal is to pro­vide that same sta­ble, ther­a­peu­tic care that patients receive in ECF in a new way,” Rooney said. With our swing bed pro­gram we are able to con­tin­ue to meet the needs of our com­mu­ni­ty now and in the future.”
