CMS’ Quality, Safety and Oversight (QSO) group released a memo directed to nursing homes that is helpful for home health and hospice providers. The memo provides guidance on reporting COVID-19 to residents, representatives and families of residents, as well as reporting the data directly to the CDC.
CMS will also begin posting data from the CDC National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) for public viewing. This file will be available on https://data.cms.gov/.
