The Covid-19 Long-Term Care Bed Availability portal has been replaced with the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program Bed and Service Availability portal. Long-Term Care Facilities (all levels of care) are strongly encouraged to complete an electronic survey weekly to report how many beds they have available, and which residents they can serve, i.e., memory care, behavioral health, bariatric, etc. This information will be used to generate a dashboard that is beneficial to facilities, families, hospital discharge planners and the general public to determine bed availability and services throughout the state. More information will be coming soon about how to access and use the dashboard to view all collected data.
This is a great opportunity to share what your facility has to offer!
Please access this link training video for instructions on how to complete the survey. The survey can be accessed from this link: survey. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program via email LTCOmbudsman@health.mo.gov or call 800-309-3282.
