CMS has posted the nursing home COVID-19 data for the week ending May 7, 2023.

Comparing the May 7, 2023 data to the April 30, 2023 data shows these changes:

  • Resident primary vaccination completion rate decreased 0.2% this past week;
  • Residents up to date with vaccines increased 0.1% this past week;
  • Staff primary vaccination completion rate remained unchanged again this past week;
  • Staff up to date increased 0.3% this past week;
  • An additional 4,502 resident cases were confirmed this past week;
  • 131 resident deaths were reported this past week;

  • 1 additional staff death was reported this past week.

Be sure to review your facility’s vaccination rates on the list of every nursing home with recent resident and staff vaccination rates and other pertinent data as this data will be used for completing the COVID-19 Matrix during survey. State surveyors look at this data in preparation for your survey. You’ll also need to know your current rate (as reported to NHSN) and provide it to the survey team entering your facility. This data is current as of the week ending May 7, 2023.

The end of the PHE took place at 11:59pm on Thursday, May 11, 2023.
