  • Description:
    "The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is a public health surveillance system that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP) maintains and supports as a mainstay of its healthcare-associated infection (HAI) prevention program. NHSN is used by healthcare facilities in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Participation in NHSN is a state-mandated requirement for healthcare facilities in an increasing number of states. As of December 2011, 22 states and Washington, D.C., require, or have plans to require, use of NHSN for HAI reporting mandates. Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) and surgical site infections (SSIs) are the HAIs most frequently mandated by states that use NHSN as their operational system for mandatory reporting. As of January 2011, hospitals participating in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program are using NHSN to report CLABSIs among adult, pediatric, and neonatal intensive care unit patients. The CLABSI data reported via NHSN to CMS will be used to qualify hospitals for their annual payment update and for public reporting (starting January 2012) at the Department of Health and Human Services Hospital Compare web site. Similar reporting on SSIs to qualify hospitals began in January 2012. These mandates, coupled with the use of NHSN to comply with requirements by CMS, has led to a roughly 50% increase in the number of facilities reporting to NHSN between 2009 and the end of 2010." - p. 2
