The medical/surgical unit specializes in the care of patients whose medical or surgical conditions require hospitalization and the expertise and care of physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals.
When a patient's condition and care needs no longer require acute hospital care but they are not yet ready to go home or to another care setting, they may be admitted to the Amberwell Atchison Swing Bed program. When admitted to this program, each patient will have a comprehensive treatment plan developed by such services as physical and/or occupational therapy, pharmacy, nursing, social services, and dietetics that is overseen and coordinated by a physician. The patient and their family are encouraged to be active participants in this plan. During their stay patients will also be offered therapeutic recreational activities tailored to their individual interests.
