I had a broken leg and could not get up the stairs into my house for a short time. Swing bed is sort of a minimum care situation in a hospital. As it was explained to me you are essentially getting room and board for a short period. The alternative was a nursing home and I didn't want that under any circumstances. It is outrageously expensive though, about $200 per day here.

Thanks, that's a term that I was not familiar with. No hammock?
