Reporting And Data

Hospitals are requested to complete a daily log on patients that need to be discharged to a lower level of care in order to help track the COVID-19 bed crisis throughout the State of Nevada.

Nevada skilled nursing facilities are required to complete a daily census survey under a directive from the State's Chief Medical Officer. The State will use this information for internal dashboards that will merge with data provided by the hospitals.  State health officials hope that having this data will help to organize transitions and tell the full story of need within Nevada.

Skilled nursing facilities must report any outbreaks of COVID-19 immediately, and continue reporting until there are no new cases. An outbreak is defined as any new occurrence in residents or staff.

All NV hospitals must report to the Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) within 24 hours of any decision or intent to stop medically necessary procedures and provide the dates that the stoppage will remain in effect.

Facilities administering the COVID-19 vaccine will need to enter certain aggregate and other information into the REDCap system in addition to the data entered into WebIZ. More information will be posted here as it becomes available.

If a pharmacy becomes aware of any unusual or excessive loss or disappearance of a product that is a precursor to methamphetamine while the product is under the control of the pharmacy, the pharmacy must make an oral and written report to the NV Department of Public Safety.

A medical facility must notify the Division of Public and Behavioral Health within 10 days of a change in the administrator of the facility or if there is a transfer of the real property on which the facility is located. If there is a change in ownership, address, or service provided, the Division must be notified immediately.

Effective 7/15/20, Nevada’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ihsan Azzam, is requesting that all skilled nursing facilities participate in the Nevada Health Alert Network (NVHAN).

It is understood during this time of crisis that skilled nursing facilities are extremely busy taking care of residents; therefore, in addition to general demographics the only information being requested is:

  1. The skilled nursing facility census reported daily; and
  2. Whether the facility can safely accept new residents, including recovering COVID-19 residents that are within the scope of care provided by skilled nursing facilities.
