Program Overview: This webinar will focus on the protocol and swing bed changes that were promulgated by CMS
This webinar will focus on the protocol and swing bed changes that were promulgated by CMS on October 12, 2018 and amended November 29, 2019. In fact, CMS completely rewrote all of the swing bed regulations, with swing bed interpretive guidelines and survey procedures now under Appendix PP. CMS is also changing all of the CAH tag numbers and the new numbers for the swing beds will be included. Many Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) are not aware of these changes or are struggling to comply. This is a must attend webinar for any CAHs with swing beds.
- Discuss that CMS made some recent changes to the protocol process
- Recall that CMS has rewritten the entire section on swing beds
- Describe what is required by CMS to be in the resident assessment which is done to do the care plan
- Recall the CMS requirements on patient activities of swing bed patients
