NYS DOH has finalized the Week 10 NH/ACF Staff Testing Survey. There are no changes to the survey questions for this week

Lisa Volk and Jackie Pappalardi in Clinical & Quality

The Week 10 survey will be released (via IHAN alert through HCS) Wednesday (tomorrow), 7/22 at 9am. As always, the survey will close promptly Thursday, 7/23 at 5pm. 

All facilities will still receive the normal IHAN alerts:

1)   Tuesday, July 21, 2020: Notice that Weekly STS will be released Wednesday, 7/15

2)   Wednesday, July 22, 2020: 9am message with link to the survey

3)   Thursday, July 23, 2020: 12pm reminder that survey will close at 5pm

Remember the following: 

1)   If the survey is not completed, the facility will not receive Test Kits or PPE from NYS for the upcoming testing period

2)   If a confirmation email is not received, then the system did not log the survey submission

    • If resubmitting, refresh the webpage and re-enter the survey information
    • If problems persist, email DOH ASAP 

If you or your facilities have any questions, our team stands ready to help. Please email either covidadultcareinfo@health.ny.gov or covidnursinghomeinfo@health.ny.gov as soon as a question or an issue appears, so that we can troubleshoot the problem together.
