The CDC 5-Step Enrollment for Outpatient Dialysis Facilities - CMS QIP provides dialysis facilities with a quick step guide on enrollment to NHSN.  


CMS requires for the ESRD QIP that at least one staff member at a dialysis facility is trained in and knowledgeable of how to report dialysis event data to NHSN.  The CDC recommends having at least two users with administrator rights per facility to provide coverage for staff absences and turnover.  


Use the New NHSN User Check as a new user after your facility is enrolled in NHSN.
