COVID-19 Capacity and Utilization

Latest Update: September 22, 2020

Reporting Information

UPDATE: Per the Nevada Hospital Association, major COVID-19 data reporting changes are expected mid-to-late May. This includes a significant reduction in the number of data elements collected, and a change from daily to once per week data collection.

Hospitals must report capacity and utilization data in order to assist the White House Coronavirus Task Force in tracking the movement of the virus, and to facilitate planning, monitoring, and resource allocation during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.

Responsible Party

Who Must Report?

When Do I Report?

See: COVID-19 Guidance for Hospital Reporting and FAQs updated May 27, 2021


How Do I Report?

Hospitals should report daily capacity and utilization data to their State if they have received a written release from the State and the State has received written certification from their ASPR Regional Administrator to take over Federal reporting responsibilities.

Note: The Nevada Hospital Association (NHA) is collecting this data on behalf of all NRHP member hospitals. See certification letter below from HHS approving NHA to collect hospital data.

The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) assumed responsibility for collection of COVID-19 hospital data on Thursday, December 15, 2022. NHA uploads hospital data to NHSN. There is no change required of hospitals. Hospitals are NOT required to enter COVID data into NHSN for this purpose if they are reporting to NHA.

Any other pertinent information

Hospitals should no longer report capacity and utilization data via the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) website. Note that this directive does NOT apply to LTC reporting, which should still be done via NHSN.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals. The reporting requirements and legal mandates on this site are not an exhaustive list and Nevada Rural Hospital Partners, Inc. bears no responsibility or liability for any hospitals' or providers' failure to comply with Federal or State laws or regulations.
