Keeping your swing bed program “survey ready” is every hospital’s goal.  But, it can be difficult, especially with the recent changes in swing bed regulations that were released by CMS in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The webinar will discuss the major CMS changes since 2018 and provide a tool that can be used for internal auditing  for each of the swing bed processes from pre-admission to discharge.


Upon completion of the webinar, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify the changes in the swing bed regulations by CMS since 2018
  2.  Identify best practices for developing a swing bed audit
  3. Discuss how swing bed auditing can help fulfill CAH QAPI requirements

Fun Fact:

George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson were all land surveyors before taking office as the President of the United States? 

OK —- we’re not talking about that kind of survey.
