The first of our two-part series will focus on ways to improve your swing bed program from both the organization and resident’s perspective.

The webinar will include a step-by-step review of each swing bed process, from pre-admission to discharge, including swing bed admission and continued stay criteria, resident assessment, multi-disciplinary planning, and documentation.

The webinar will also include a discussion of the role of each member of the team, including the resident.

  2. Describe at least one strategy for engaging the resident in their plan of care.
