Clarification Regarding the NHSN 2023 Annual Survey Requirements

Survey and Certification; Regulations

Nursing facilities may have received a recent email from the National Health and Safety Network (NHSN) stating they are required to complete the 2023 annual facility survey by March 1, 2024, or they may see an interruption in their service in NHSN. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) clarified that the 2023 annual facility survey is only required for providers who are reporting into the HAI modules (UTI/MDRO/CDI/PPM). Therefore, providers who submit data outside of these modules (i.e., COVID-10, annual Health Care Provider Influenza Vaccination data) are NOT required to complete the survey. 

For additional questions or concerns, please contact the NHSN Help Desk or the AHCA regulatory team​.
