This presentation provides instruction for preparing your long-term care facility to report to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), the CDC’s Healthcare Associated Infection Tracking System. Entering infection data into NHSN will allow facilities to help establish a national baseline for nursing home C. Difficile rates and subsequently identify goals to improve the quality of care and resident outcomes.

You will learn:

  • How to successfully set up for reporting C. diff statistics
  • How to create a monthly reporting plan
  • How to join groups in NHSN system
