Wildfire season is here, and CMS requires all ESRD Networks to track the status of facility operations, and patient access to treatment, during emergency events at all facilities. If the operations of your facility, or ability for patients to have access to dialysis, are impacted by emergency events, please let your Network know right away.
- For Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska (Network 16), contact Lisa Hall or Ashley Thomsen at 206-923-0714, or by email at LHall@nw16.esrd.net or email@example.com. We also ask that you fill out and submit the Network Disaster Reporting Form at http://www.esrdnetwork18.org/machform/view.php?id=44393 (Network 18 will forward it back to Network 16).
- In Southern and South-Central California (Network 18), contact Eileen Rhodes or Anabel Galindo-Guerrero at 888-268-1539 or by email at ERhodes@nw18.esrd.net or firstname.lastname@example.org, and fill out the form at http://www.esrdnetwork18.org/machform/embed.php?id=16298.
You are reminded never to put PHI or PII in an email or online form. Examples include patient name or initials, birthdate, SSN, and other identifying information.
