NH/ACF Weekly Staff Testing Survey (Week 12)

Jackie Pappalardi and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

NYSDOH has finalized the Week 12 NH/ACF Staff Testing Survey. There are no changes to the survey questions for this week.  

The Week 12 survey will be released (via IHAN alert through HCS) Wednesday, 8/5 at 9am. As always, the survey will close promptly Thursday, 8/6 at 5pm. 

All facilities will still receive the normal IHAN alerts:

  1. Wednesday, August 5, 2020: 9am message with link to the survey
  2. Thursday, August 6, 2020: 12pm reminder that survey will close at 5pm 

Please remember to complete the following: 

  1. If you do not complete the survey, your facility will not receive Test Kits or PPE from NYS for the upcoming testing period
  2. If you do not receive a confirmation email, then the system did not log you survey submission
    • Most respondents who do not receive confirmation emails have misspelled their email address in the survey
    • If resubmitting, refresh the webpage and re-enter the survey information
    • If problems persist, email DOH ASAP 

If your facilities have any questions, the DOH team stands ready to help. Please email either covidadultcareinfo@health.ny.gov or covidnursinghomeinfo@health.ny.gov as soon as a question or an issue appears, so that DOH can troubleshoot the problem with you directly.
