NYS DOH - Week 14 NH/ACF Staff Testing Survey

Lisa Volk and Jackie Pappalardi in Clinical & Quality

DOH has finalized the Week 14 NH/ACF Staff Testing Survey. There are no substantive changes to the survey questions for this week. 

The Week 14 survey will be released (via IHAN alert through HCS) Wednesday, 8/19 at 9 am. As always, the survey will close promptly Thursday, 8/20 at 5 pm. 

All facilities will still receive the normal IHAN alerts:

1)   Wednesday, August 19, 2020: 9 am message with link to the survey

2)   Thursday, August 20, 2020: 12 pm reminder that survey will close at 5 pm 

Please remind your facilities of the following: 

1)   If your facility does not complete the survey, they will not receive Test Kits or PPE from NYS for the upcoming testing period

2)   If your facility does not receive a confirmation email, then the system did not log their survey submission

  1. Most respondents who do not receive confirmation emails have misspelled their email address in the survey
  2. If resubmitting, refresh the webpage and re-enter the survey information
  3. If problems persist, email DOH ASAP 

If your facility has any questions, please email either covidadultcareinfo@health.ny.gov or covidnursinghomeinfo@health.ny.gov
