NHSN Group Users
View resources for group users here.
The person designated as the NHSN Facility Administrator is the only person who can enroll a facility in NHSN or reassign the role of Facility Administrator. This person will also have the ability to confer rights to groups, that is, entities with which your hospital wants to share some/all of its data (e.g., state or county health department, corporate headquarters). For facilities participating in more than one NHSN Component, the NHSN Facility Administrator should be a person with authority across the involved departments.
