NHSN FAQ Document

NHSN FAQ Document

When CMS posted the NHSN information yesterday, they also posted an FAQ document to go along with the data.  One thing you should note, the information posted on NHSN has an 11 day lag time from time of upload into the system and posting on the public NHSN link on the Nursing Home Compare website.  The FAQ document will give instructions on who to contact if you are missing data on the NHSN website, how to correct data you have already submitted.  If you are having any issues with your NHSN data, or if you have any questions about NHSN, WA State DOH has a fabulous resource person, Larissa Lewis, and she is able to look in NHSN and see what issues you might be having and try to help correct them.
