Register to attend this National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) event, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 22, from 10-11 a.m. CT. This is one of two events that will provide the same content. The NHSN team will introduce and provide training for a new NHSN Long-term Care Facility COVID-19 Pathway laboratory data reporting option. This training will be live and allow for submission of audience questions. The new NHSN option will enable nursing homes to enter point of care (POC) SARS-CoV-2 laboratory test data into the NHSN application. NHSN, in turn, will report the nursing home POC laboratory test data electronically to the public health agency, state or local, that has jurisdictional authority and responsibility to receive and use the nursing home’s data. Deidentified nursing home POC laboratory also will be reported via existing public health reporting mechanisms to the US Department of Health and Human Services in accordance with the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act requirements.
