Muleshoe is licensed for 25 acute care beds, all of which may be used as “swing beds” or skilled nursing beds. As a result, the hospital can care for many inpatients with acute and chronic medical conditions such as heart attacks, congestive heart failure, pneumonia and influenza, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, etc.
In addition, the Swing Bed Program allows patients – discharged from Muleshoe or any other hospital following an acute illness, injury or surgery – who still need time and physical therapy to heal and strengthen before going home.
The hospital’s Swing Bed Program eases the transition from acute care to home by providing patients with access to highly trained and caring medical professionals right here in Muleshoe! Click here to download a copy of our Swing Bed Brochure.
Hospital staff follows nationally recognized evidence based guidelines and core measures to help ensure the highest quality of care levels.
Patient satisfaction is measured through participation in a standardized national survey of hospitals called HCAHPS, the first national, standardized, publicly reported survey of patients' perspectives of hospital care.
