The NHSN is not the fining entity you need to worry about. If you receive an incitement letter (fine) for COVID-19 reporting non-compliance, it will be from CMS, and it typically takes form as witholding on a facility's reimbursement.
More than $15 Million in fines have been issued to Nursing Homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Facilities can recieve a CMP (Civil Money Penalty) of up to $1,000 per day for non-compliance.
EasyReporting can monitor your CMS messages and detect an incitement letter. If one is detected, we'll alert you, and help you put together a case to appeal it.
Maybe you're wanding "How much would EasyReporting cost me?" Glad you asked! We've made EasyReporting a low-cost solution so anyone can afford it. Learn More
