Posted May 19, 20201 min Read

Regulatory & Clinical

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) sent out a survey on May 18, asking nursing facilities for information on how they could accomplish COVID-19 testing of all staff in a two week period.  The effort is to collect information from facilities to attempt assembly of a more comprehensive and sustained testing strategy.

ISDH is asking each skilled nursing facility to complete the survey by close of business on May 20, 2020.


The person completing the survey should have knowledge of the number of staff and contractors and a firm understanding of barriers to testing – both physical, financial, and operational.  Persons completing the survey should engage clinical and company leadership before submitting the survey.
