All people including the elderly, the terminally ill, the invalid, and those recuperating from an illness may take part in the Skilled Care Program regardless of denomination, race, color, creed, or national origin. Patients choosing to stay in the Swing Bed Program will wear their own clothes, unless medically inappropriate, and may go out of the hospital for leaves of absence if approved by the physician. The activities coordinator will meet with the patient and his/her family to identify the person’s interests and help provide diversional activities.
