9/30 NHSN Annual Training

The Dialysis Event training course is now available on the Dialysis Event homepage.  Every NHSN user must complete re-training annually, before September 30, by re-reading the Dialysis Event Protocol at https://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/pdfs/pscmanual/8pscdialysiseventcurrent.pdf , and taking the online training course at https://nhsn.cdc.gov/nhsntraining/courses/2016/C18/ .  To properly identify yourself and get training credit for your facility and yourself, you must enter your First Name, Last Name, email address, 5-digit facility “OrgID,” and Network Number before completing the test.

The email address entered must be the email address associated with your SAMS account.  You can identify the correct email address, and your 5-digit facility OrgID, by:

  • Log in to https://sams.cdc.gov
  • Click “NHSN Reporting” and log in to your facility
  • Click on the username in the top-right corner
  • Copy the email address under “My Info”
  • Copy the 5-digit OrgID

Your facility’s ESRD Network number is “16” for facilities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana or Alaska, and “18” for facilities in Southern and South-Central California.  For other locations see http://esrdncc.org/en/ESRD-network-map/ .

  1. Hello,

    I took the test and passed but the facility ID number I entered was incorrect. Would I still get credit? Thank you.
