Presently, the TeleTracking system asks hospitals to report all of their offered beds as one overall number, not broken down by bed type as the NHSN system had. Health centers total number of beds reported includes pediatric beds, neonatal extensive care unit (ICU) bassinets, psychiatric beds, labor and shipment beds, rehabilitation beds and others. As a practical matter, not all of these bed types could be used for looking after adult patients hospitalized with COVID-19, or other medical issues.
