NH/ACF Weekly Staff Testing Survey (Week 20)

Jackie Pappalardi and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

DOH has finalized the Week 20 of the NH/ACF Staff Testing Survey.  There are no substantive changes to the survey questions for this week.   The Week 20 survey will be released (via IHAN alert through HCS) on Wednesday, 9/30 at 9am and will close Thursday, 10/1 at 5pm.  You will receive the normal IHAN alert on Wednesday, September 30th at 9:00am with a link to the survey and a reminder on Thursday, October 1st at 12:00 that the survey will close at 5:00pm.

It is important that you submit this survey.

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 your 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 facility has any questions, DOH is ready to help you.  You can 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.
