2018 Manual Updates
HFAP has revised Chapter 11 Swing Beds to be in compliance with Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Reform of Requirements for Long-Term Care Facilities as posted in the Federal Register on October 4, 2016. This final rule revises requirements for swing beds.
The Federal Register final rule results in the revision of nearly all standards in this chapter. These standards have also been renumbered to reflect the new Code of Federal Regulations (CfR) assignment.
These revised requirements will be effective March 1, 2018.
