Participating facilities are required to report data according to the Dialysis Event Protocol, using the NHSN definitions described in the protocol, to ensure data are uniformly reported across participating facilities. Report available data to NHSN within 30 days to 60 days of the end of the month for which they were collected. If additional data become available after that period, users are expected to report the additional information retrospectively to ensure NHSN data are complete and accurate. This may involve reporting additional dialysis events and/or editing existing event records.
