Reporting And Data

COVID-19 Skilled Nursing Facility Nevada Health Alert Network (NVHAN) (EMResource)

Latest Update: September 22, 2020

Reporting Information

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.

How Do I Report?

NVHAN is administered through a program called EMResource. In addition to delivering NVHAN messages, EMResource is a statewide bed tracking, availability and alerting system used in each hospital and will also begin including skilled nursing facilities throughout the state. NVHAN relays important health care information received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local agencies via Technical Bulletins.
