What is a dual use room or swing bed?

Dual use beds or rooms are also known as swing beds. They allow for various levels of care e.g., rest home or hospital, to be provided in the same room. For those concerned about having to move rooms if their needs change, a dual use/swing bed room may be the solution. (A possible exception is dementia care, which may require a move to a more secure environment.) These rooms are not available in all facilities. A premium charge may or may not apply.
