Don’t Wait, Vaccinate!

We’ve added the September Monthly Patient Flyer/Poster to the Network 16 website at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/ptedres/mon.html .  The Poster includes information about the flu, vulnerability, and the vaccine, links to a “Flu IQ Widget” or quiz, and how to get more information.

Don’t forget that healthcare personnel flu vaccination is part of the ESRD QIP, and must be reported to NHSN by May 15, 2017 for PY2019.

We’ve added the latest issue of our patient newsletter, Network Consumer News, to the Network 16 website.  This issue is on “Staying Healthy: Medicare’s Preventive Services,” with supplementary articles on Vaccinations and news about goings-on at Network 16.  We also include a summary of what Networks can do for patients, as well as a feedback form.  Find the current Network Consumer News issue, along with the archive of earlier issues, at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/ptedres/ncn.html .
