Instructions for downloading reports from NHSN to verify data for Section 7B: Healthcare-Associated Infections for the Leapfrog Hospital Survey are available on the Join NHSN Group page of Leapfrog's website.
All hospitals that have completed the steps to have their healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and antibiotic stewardship practices data downloaded from NHSN are required to download and save reports from NHSN to verify the data downloaded, scored, and publicly reported by Leapfrog.
Leapfrog recommends that hospitals follow the instructions provided and save copies of the NHSN 2021 Patient Safety Component – Annual Hospital Survey and CMS IQR Reports on the same day that Leapfrog will be downloading the data from NHSN for all current group members.
Leapfrog will download data from NHSN for all current group members on the dates published on the Join NHSN Group page of Leapfrog's website.
Note: This information is only applicable to hospitals. ASCs looking for more information about joining Leapfrog's NHSN Group for ASCs should review information on the Join ASC NHSN Group page.
