NHSN Update

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) initial LTC COVID-19 data upload was due last Sunday, May 24 by 11:59 pm. This week letters are being delivered to those who’s data has not been received. If you receive a letter and thought you uploaded your data properly, send them an email to work through the issue. They have been responding to assist. You can also review the NHSN guidance or listen to their recorded webinars posted on the website at www.cdc.gov/nhsn and go to the LTC COVID section. On NHSN’s webinar last week, they noted that one of the last steps in the process is to verify your data is correct and then submit it.
