Tracking Infections in Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities

medical building

NHSN is the HAI surveillance gold standard. The system (and its predecessors) started years ago helping a few hundred healthcare facilities; today, more than 11,000 healthcare facilities use NHSN as the cornerstone of their HAI elimination strategies. Specifically, facilities use NHSN to:

  • Access NHSN enrollment requirements for CMS Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program,
  • Obtain baseline HAI rates,
  • Compare rates to CDC’s national data,
  • Participate in state or national HAI prevention collaboratives,
  • Devise and implement HAI elimination strategies,
  • Evaluate immediate and long-term results of elimination efforts,
  • Refocus efforts as needed, or advance to different areas
