CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is supporting the nation’s COVID-19 response by providing a Dialysis Facility (DIAL) COVID-19 Module, which enables an assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on patients and staff at dialysis facilities through facility-reported information. This information includes weekly counts of patients and facility personnel (staff) with positive SARS-CoV-2 viral test results, and weekly death counts among patients and facility personnel with positive SARS-CoV-2 viral test results.
Facility-level summary data collected through the NHSN Outpatient Dialysis COVID-19 Module are being made available to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, along with state and local agency data users.
On this page, data on COVID-19 cases and deaths among patients and staff of dialysis facilities are displayed at the national or state level. These summaries use data that dialysis facilities submitted to the NHSN COVID-19 Module. Differences in how each facility implements this COVID-19 data collection, including variation in which staff collect the data, may affect facility reporting patterns. Additionally, data summarizing patient/staff counts with confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths related to COVID-19 that appear erroneous or inconsistent with NHSN protocols are excluded. There may also be a lag in time from when dialysis facilities report data to NHSN and subsequent posting of the data on this webpage. As a result, the figures presented on this page may not exactly match data publicly posted by state health departments and other organizations.
This data dashboard is updated weekly on Friday by 8:00am Eastern Time.
IMPORTANT: Data displayed on this page were submitted directly to CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) and do not include data submitted to other entities contracted by or within the local or federal government.
