CDC to Outline NHSN Reporting Changes

While the requirement for nursing homes to report weekly COVID-19 data through the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is not going away, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be implementing a number of revisions to the Long Term Care Facility (LTCF) COVID-19 Module for June 2023. The Therapeutics pathway is expected to be eliminated, along with several questions from the remaining Surveillance Module pathways. The CDC is inviting nursing homes to attend a training session to learn about how data entry forms will change and receive instructions for accurate reporting.

The first opportunity will be on Thurs., June 1st at 2 p.m. The same information will be repeated on Wed., June 7th at 1 p.m. and on Thurs., June 8th and Tues., June 13th at 2 p.m. Each session will include a question and answer session. Registration is required, with links to do so available here.
