The Swing Bed regulatory requirements do not have interpretative guidelines – and only refer to Appendix PP which are the standards for Long Term Care.

However, as anyone who has tried to find the cross-references to Appendix PP knows, it can be very challenging.

The webinar will focus on the basic regulatory requirements for Swing Bed, with emphasis on the interpretative guidelines in Appendix PP, and moving into a stable future.


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

  1. Describe how to find the interpretative guidelines in Appendix PP
  2. Describe at least three critical regulatory references to Appendix PP
