The Survey Has Closed.

The National Ventilator Survey was closed in October 2009, and the data and results were handed over to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

The HHS and AARC would like to offer their sincere thanks to all the participating hospitals and their personnel that helped to deliver the information.

National Ventilator Survey

Welcome to the start page for the National Ventilator Survey. The AARC is conducting an inventory of all ventilators in our nationís hospitals. To prepare for the survey, we recommend completing a pre-survey worksheet (‘lite’ version or detailed version).

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services further secures the privacy of your institution’s data through participation in the Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) program administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Resulting from the Critical Infrastructure Information Act (CII) of 2002, the PCII program protects voluntarily submitted critical infrastructure information from public release through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), state and local disclosure laws, and use in civil litigation. Additionally, PCII can not be used for regulatory purposes. Institutions and facilities sending important data into the Federal government can be assured of the highest commitment to confidentiality and security of their data.
