CMS Critical Access Hospital Swing Bed Requirements

Date: 8/13/2024, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Swing beds can be a financial lifeline for Critical Access Hospitals (CAH). This webinar will focus on swing bed regulations in Appendix W for CAHs. Interpretive guidelines and survey procedures are under Appendix PP – Long Term Care manual, which will be discussed in the corresponding regulation sections.
It is challenging to figure out what the interpretive guidelines and survey procedures are, as there is no crosswalk between Appendix W for CAH and Appendix PP for Long-Term Care. This webinar will assist hospitals in understanding these complexities.
Finally, this session will discuss common deficiencies involving swing beds and how to avoid them.
