(May 8, 2020) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Healthcare Safety Network has introduced a new COVID-19 Module for Long Term Care Facilities in the NHSN's LTCF Component. Participation in the COVID-19 Module for LTCFs requires facilities to be actively enrolled in NHSN. LTCFs that are currently enrolled in NHSN's LTCF Component have immediate access to the new module and may begin reporting.
Facilities that are currently enrolled in NHSN should not re-enroll as this will generate duplicate accounts for that facility. A facility should only enroll once into NHSN.
For assistance with access or information about enrollment status, facilities should contact NHSN support at email@example.com.
