CMS requires ESRD Networks to track the status of facility operations and patient access to treatment at all facilities. If the operations of your facility, or ability for patients to have access to dialysis, are interrupted for any reason, let your Network know as soon as possible.
In Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska (Network 16), fill out and submit the Network Disaster Reporting Form at http://www.esrdnetwork18.org/machform/view.php?id=44393 (the completed form gets routed back to Network 16). If you need assistance, you may also call or email Lisa Hall at 206-923-0714 or LHall@Comagine.org, or Brianna Smith at 509-306-8313 or BSmith2@Comagine.org.

Never put patient name, initials, address, birthdate, SSN, other identifying information, or any other PHI or PII, in an email or online form. If PHI or PII is important in this context, call instead.
