Hospitals had seen a significant increase in survey activity by CMS along with an increase number of deficiencies pre-COVID-19. This webinar will focus on the protocol changes and the swing bed changes that were promulgated by CMS on October 12, 2018 and amended November 29, 2019. CMS completely rewrote all the swing bed regulations and rewrote the Tag numbers. The swing bed interpretive guidelines and survey procedures are now under Appendix PP. Many CAHs are not aware of these changes or are struggling to comply. With the COVID-19 pandemic, waivers were issued that affect Swing Beds. It is challenging to figure out what the interpretive guidelines and survey procedure as there is there was no crosswalk between Appendix W – for CAH – and Appendix PP – Long Term Care. This webinar was created to take the mystery out of this.
Common deficiencies and how to avoid them will be discussed. Information on how to locate the CAH manual and other resources will be discussed. There will also be a discussion of the 1135 Waivers available to Critical Access Hospitals with Swing Beds.
