Description

PURPOSE: The primary purpose of this study is to identify the readmission possibilities following a swing bed program in an acute critical hospital. The length of stay in a hospital swing bed or skilled care status program has less readmission rates. SUBJECTS: 426 patients were admitted into the Eaton Rapids Medical Center from January through December of 2015. Patients that are admitted into the swing bed program range from 7 years old to 101 years old, but majority of the patients are 40 years old. The patients ranged from acute critical care to waiting for redirection into long term care. METHOD AND MATERIALS: Through electronic medical records on admission, length of stay, readmission, age, race, types of insurance used. The method that I used was the multiple regression correlation coefficient to determine the purpose. ANALYSES: The severity of the diagnosis for the admission of the patient depended on whether the patient was admitted into the swing bed program verses inpatient recovery. If the patient were readmitted they automatically were in the swing bed program. The patients that were admitted directly into the skilled nursing critical care based on diagnosis had lower readmission rate. The length of stay results in less readmission rates as well as healthier return to daily living activities. CONCLUSION: While conceptualizing this project, I had the inclination that the availability of a swing bed program would influence patients to choose the swing bed program and leave the hospital healthier and able to return to their daily living.
