Swing Bed

Swing bed hospitals include both critical access hospitals (CAHs) and those paid under the Prospective Payment System (PPS), but the financial incentives for providing skilled nursing care in a swing bed differ dramatically between the two types of hospitals.  HealthTechS3 has extensive experience in the licensing and compliance of swing bed programs.  We offer a menu of services to those hospitals utilizing swing beds including, but not limited to:

    • Off-site review of policies, procedures and resident required notices.
    • 2 ½ – 3-day on-site review of existing swing bed program and associated workflows.
    • Review of swing bed utilization and growth opportunities.
    • Development of a swing bed education and competency program for clinical staff.
    • Participation in the HealthTechS3 Swing Bed virtual network.
