NHSN CLABSI SIR Issues Resolved

2019-08-14 |

The NHSN Team has sent the following information to NHSN users:

Since July 16, NHSN users have been experiencing problems when trying to run the CLABSI SIR reports. Events occurring in Oncology locations were showing up as negative values and certain central line summary location/months were being excluded from the report tables.

As of August 14, issues with the following CLABSI reports, regarding the missing summary location/months, have been resolved:

  • Rate table –CLAB Data for SCA/ONC
  • SIR – Acute Care Hospital CLAB data
  • SIR – CLAB Data for Hospital IQR

To view your updated data, please log into NHSN and generate analysis datasets prior to running these reports. Remember that each individual user in your facility or group will have to generate their own datasets to apply the change to their reports.

Please note: these issues are limited to the reports as run within the NHSN application and do not impact the data that are shared with CMS quality reporting programs.
