NHSN Deadline Tracking & Troubleshooting Assistance

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires nursing homes to submit information each week to the National Healthcare Safety Network’s (NHSN) COVID-19 Vaccination Data Reporting Module. The deadline for reporting the previous week’s cumulative vaccination rates is every Sunday by 11:59 p.m. ET.

To help keep your reporting weeks organized at-a-glance, the Health Quality Innovation Network (HQIN) has developed a printable NHSN Weekly COVID-19 Vaccination Data Reporting sheet outlining the NHSN submission deadlines for 2021.

HQIN has provided NHSN reporting assistance to many facilities across the state. If you would like to receive no-cost assistance, we encourage you to join the HQIN Nursing Home NHSN Reporting Group. This will enable HQIN to view your data for problem-solving and quality improvement purposes. Download How to Join the HQIN Nursing Home Reporting NHSN Group for easy instructions on how to join.

As your dedicated Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO), HQIN is available to support you and your facility with the required COVID-19 vaccine administration reporting. If you have questions, please contact HQIN.
