NIOSH Docket Number 187

Healthcare Personnel Safety (HPS) Component

The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is an internet-based surveillance system established in 2005 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP) that includes both patient safety and healthcare personnel health and safety modules. The proposed enhancement to the NHSN will electronically link and integrate a wide variety of ongoing occupational health surveillance activities and facilitate more accurate and timely prevention strategies, while meeting necessary confidentiality and security requirements. This meeting provided an opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to the initial development of the data collection.
