DAL/DQS #07-06: 24/7 Emergency Contact with New York State Department of Health

Karen Morris in Emergency Readiness, Clinical & Quality

The NYSDOH has posted the attached Dear Administrator Letter from 2007, “DAL/DQS #07-06: 24/7 Emergency Contact with New York State Department of Health”, to the Health Commerce System. This is a good opportunity, at the beginning of the hurricane and flood season, to review the correct protocol for notifying New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) in an emergency. It is important that nursing homes throughout New York State have access to accurate 24/7 contact information with NYSDOH. The purpose of this letter is to provide nursing home facilities with the NYSDOH Duty Officer number: 1-866-881-2809.
