Our nursing department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We provide outpatient, emergency, observation, and inpatient care. The nurse to patient ratio is kept low to ensure the staff can provide the quality of nursing care each patient needs. The nursing department strives to go the extra mile in providing care to return patients to their optimum level of health.

Providing the Highest Quality Patient Care for Adults and Children

Caldwell Regional Medical Center practices total patient care to foster a close rapport between nurses, patients, families and providers, as well as other members of the healthcare team. Our highly trained nurses communicate with your provider and provide compassionate care to our patients. From a caring voice and an extra warm blanket, to a late night snack and friendly smile, our nurses make the difference.


Patients are admitted to the hospital for numerous diagnosis’ and will receive care from highly qualified registered nurses and certified nurses aides.


At Caldwell Regional Medical Center our goal is to provide a caring and safe environment for all residents. This program is based on space availability and is a short term goal (up to 14 days) to assist with families and their love one while making long term plans, or going on vacation or just a peace of mind, that their loved one being taken care of. This is a private pay service.


At Caldwell Regional Medical Center, patients do not have to have to be physically moved to a different room or unit when they are transferred from acute bed status to skilled swing bed status for additional rehabilitation following sickness or surgery. For our patients’ convenience, they remain in their own rooms if their status changes. We found that changing patients to “skilled” status and allowing patients to stay in the same room provides may benefits including:

  • More time to recover following an illness or surgery
  • Less expensive care than an acute hospitalization
  • Helps to keep patients oriented to surroundings and staff
  • Reduces the possibility of lost items
  • Reduces relocation confusion for friends and family

As Patients progress, one factor that always remains constant is the devoted attention of our highly skilled nursing staff

Caldwell Regional Medical Center has 6 designated beds for Intermediate Swing Bed for when your loved one is unable to care for themselves and may need assistance in daily living activities. This care can be provided following a hospitalization or illness, and helps care for the patient during the transition toward long-term care. Intermediate Swing Beds are considered hospital inpatient beds that are not covered by Medicare, but can be covered privately. Residents are encouraged to personalize their rooms to feel more at home.

Discharge Planning

We work with patients, families, and the entire care team to advocate for and assist our patients with problem solving personal or environmental difficulties that may arise during an illness.

We have excellent staff that strive to ensure that the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients are met, both while they are a patient, as well as after discharge.

Our staff facilitates post-discharge services including

  • Home health aides and hospice
  • Nursing home placement
  • Home and community-based service referrals
  • A variety of outpatient services
  • Medical follow-up

We can also assist with arranging for requested pastoral or spiritual care through our Volunteer Chaplain program or contact with a specific clergy member identified by the patient. Other psychosocial needs are address by providing social service support, crisis support, and discharge planning assistance.

Our Activity Director / Discharge Planning team can also assist patients with the completion of advance directives such as living wills or durable power of attorney for healthcare.
