Nursing Home Covid-19 Data Dashboard

Overview

CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is supporting the nation’s COVID-19 response by providing a Long-term Care Facilities (LTCFs) COVID-19 Module, which enables an assessment of the impact of COVID-19 through facility reported information, including: counts of residents and facility personnel (staff) with positive COVID-19 viral test results and death counts among residents and facility personnel with positive COVID-19 viral test results.

COVID-19 reporting requirements for nursing homes became effective on May 8, 2020 (see: Federal Registerpdf iconexternal icon). CMS memo QSO-20-29-NHpdf iconexternal icon provides additional information for nursing homes to meet COVID-19 reporting requirements including details about a grace period prior to enforcement. CMS only requires collection of data from nursing homes (i.e., skilled nursing facility and/or nursing facility) and not from assisted living facilities or intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

On this page, data on COVID-19 cases and deaths among residents and staff of nursing homes, which are a subset of LTCFs, are displayed at the national or state level. These summaries use data that nursing homes 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 resident/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 nursing homes 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 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Additional NHSN facility-level data for nursing homes are available on CMS’ website here: COVID-19 Nursing Home Dataexternal icon

This data dashboard is updated weekly on Wednesday at 8:00 AM.
