HERDS Critical Asset Survey Update - for all Hospitals/NHs/ACFs Statewide

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

NYSDOH is requesting a review (and update) of Critical Asset Survey data by all Hospitals, Nursing Homes (NHs) and Adult Care Facilities (ACFs) statewide.

ALL facilities are directed to review their Critical Asset Survey data to ensure that it contains accurate and UTD information - AND to answer any newly added questions. This includes the Baseline form PLUS the two supplemental forms (Surge and Resilience) included in this HERDS Activity.

At the bottom of each form, an Attestation has been added. This attestation MUST be completed on each of the three forms in order to Submit them and provide DOH with an updated Completion Date for all forms.

The Attestation will also serve as confirmation that all data was reviewed and updated if/when necessary - even on a form where no changes are made otherwise.

For this update period, the following changes have been made to the survey forms: 

  1. the Baseline form for all facility types has been updated to now include a section on Electronic Health Records (EHRs).
  2. the Baseline form for Hospitals/ACFs now contains a section on Collective Bargaining Agreements. 

This update should be completed and ALL THREE forms Submitted by Friday October 6, 2017.

For questions please send an e-mail to ohep@health.ny.gov.
