After complete knee replacement surgery, I knew I was not ready to go straight home. I contacted Sally Turpin at Elbert Memorial Hospital, and she explained the program, what it entails and what I would be expected to do. I could not have been more pleased with the program. Dr. J. Poon saw me every day looking at my knee and checked the incision. I had Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy everyday from the best trained staff. They were very helpful and taught me how to use a walker, cane, and other assisted items. Swing Bed was a great transition for me.
