SNF Report COVID-19 cases, facility staffing, and supply information to NHSN weekly

    • Resident impact and facility capacity
    • Staff and personnel impact
    • Supplies and personal protective equipment
    • Ventilator capacity and supplies
    • Weekly data submission to NHSN will meet the CMS COVID-19 reporting requirements.
