Patient Support Services
At Dr. Dan C. Trigg Memorial Hospital, we take a holistic view of your healthcare needs, which is why we also provide services to support your emotional, financial, and general health and wellness needs. Our services include:
Home Healthcare and Hospice
Tucumcari Home Health and Hospice Agency provides skilled care to patients who need specialized medical care and are considered homebound, but do not need the 24-hour monitoring of a hospital or nursing home. We also provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support to terminally ill patients and their families. Our multidisciplinary team helps patients maintain their dignity, comfort, and quality of life in the face of terminal illness.
We offer a wide range of therapy and support options for patients recovering from strokes, neurological and orthopedic conditions, as well as other illnesses, injuries, chronic conditions, and disabilities. Our therapy services are offered on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Services include physical, occupational and pulmonary rehabilitation.
Swing Bed Program
The swing bed program provides structured, multi-disciplinary care to help you heal and strengthen before going home from the hospital. A “swing bed” is used when a hospital is able to use the same bed for either acute hospital care or skilled nursing care. Thus, the bed "swings" between the two levels of care. The program helps patients recover when they are no longer acutely ill but need extra time to heal or strengthen before returning home. To qualify for the swing bed program, patients must have:
Had a three-day acute care hospital stay within the last 30 days and need daily skilled nursing or rehabilitative services treated
A reasonable expectation for clinical or functional improvement
A pay source and skilled nursing facility benefit day available through their insurance
