Can anyone share any regulations, policies, or other pertinent information regarding physician documentation for a swing bed patient? We had a patient discharged with only the H&P in the chart for an 8 day stay. My previous supervisor told me that a physician should see and document on a swing bed patient every 3 days, but I cannot find any regs to support that – not even our own in-house policy.
