Facility Comments: The actual Med/Surg balances of License Beds, Staffed Beds and Available Days are 197, 197, and 71,905. We had to file as 210, 210, and 76,650 to clear an Error that VHI could not override. The reason Med/Surg Patient Days are high is because Covid beds were used for some patient days.
