Welcome to the Los Angeles County (LAC) Department of Public Health (DPH) COVID-19 Dashboard for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs). This dashboard provides self-reported weekly information on the number of COVID-19 tests performed, persons diagnosed, and COVID vaccination coverage in LAC SNFs. The data are collected through surveys facilitated by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Page 1 includes summary data on 340 SNFs in LAC excluding Long Beach and Pasadena and Page 2 provides facility-specific data including the jurisdictions of Long Beach and Pasadena.
1 23 facilities are in unincorporated areas and are assigned to their nearest city. Some cities listed are neighborhoods within the City of Los Angeles. Thus data for the selection "Los Angeles" excludes facilities in those LA City neighborhoods.
2 Facilities with more than a 7 day supply of each of the following types of Personal Protective Equipment: Eye Protection, Gloves, Gowns, N95 Masks, Surgical Masks; see below for the definition of PPE shortages.
3 Facilities responding "no" to the CDPH survey question "Do you have an urgent staffing need over the next 48 hours?"
4 Tests performed during survey week.
5 There are a total of 340 SNFs in Los Angeles County; this excludes the jurisdictions of Long Beach and Pasadena (please visit their respective websites for more information); a value of less than 340 means some facilities did not submit a survey response for the specified reporting week.
6 Among test results received during survey week.
7 Includes cumulative cases and deaths since reporting began in March 2020, and could include cases in persons who are no longer residents or staff at the facility. For additional information on Skilled Nursing Facility-Associated COVID deaths, please see http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/locations.htm#snf-deaths.
8 An outbreak is active when at least one resident has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days. The LA County Department of Public Health does not track outbreaks at facilities in Long Beach and Pasadena. Thus, the outbreak status for these facilities is not reported.
9 Facilities may be testing staff and residents twice weekly, and are not required to retest staff or residents already known to be positive. Current LAC SNF guidance states that routine screening testing of residents is no longer required or recommended regardless of vaccination status, except in specific circumstances.
10 Average number of staff present during survey week.
11 Average number of resident beds occupied during survey week.
12 Per AFL 20-52, CDPH requires all SNFs to develop and implement a CDPH approved COVID-19 mitigation plan (MP). Beginning in July 2020, CDPH began conducting periodic site visits to assess MP implementation. Links to the CDPH reports from the first and second MP implementation assessments have been provided. Please note, the date listed reflects the start date of the assessment visit and may differ from the final report date. Due to reporting lags, the final report may not yet be posted. Please check back periodically if this is the case.
13 These data reflect the percentage of fully vaccinated staff and residents among those in the facility during the reporting week.
California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Weekly Survey of COVID-19 SNFs: This is a weekly electronic self-report survey of all SNFs in California. Dashboard data from this survey include: 1) SNF names, addresses, contact information, license numbers, and numbers of licensed beds, 2) average weekly numbers of SNF staff and residents, 3) weekly numbers of COVID-19 tests performed among SNF staff and residents, and 4) numbers of positive staff and resident results received during the survey week, and 5) COVID-19 vaccination coverage among staff and residents.
CDPH Daily 1-2-3 COVID-19 survey in SNFs: This is a daily electronic self-report survey of all SNFs in the California. Dashboard data from this survey include: 1) cumulative COVID-19 cases among SNF staff and residents since January 2020, 2) new COVID-19 deaths among SNF residents and staff during the reporting week, 3) cumulative COVID-19 deaths among SNF staff and residents since January 2020, 4) SNF staffing shortages during reporting week, and 5) shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) during reporting week.
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health: For facilities that missed submitting their weekly CDPH survey, a local LACDPH survey is sent to supplement CDPH data, therefore dashboard data from different sources will not always match.
SNF Testing Requirements:
For the LA County Department of Public Health COVID-19 testing requirements for SNF residents and staff, please see http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/acd/ncorona2019/snf.htm#testing.
Please note, known and previously positive staff and residents, or those with pending test results from the previous week do not need to be retested, therefore it is likely that many facilities will report testing less than 100% of staff and residents in a given week.
Staffing and PPE shortages:
A SNF staffing shortage is defined as any “yes” response during the reporting week to the CMS survey question “Do you have an urgent staffing need over the next 48 hours?”. A SNF PPE shortage is defined as any report of less than or equal to a 7-day supply of eye protection, gloves, gowns, N95 masks or surgical masks during the reporting week.
