What is the definition of a facility?
One of the foundational assumptions of the NRCPR database is that each participant represents a single resuscitation team. Each campus will receive its own reports, software, clinical support and technical support and will be charged a subscription fee for these services. If two campuses (differentiated by name and resuscitation teams) are adjacent to each other, each campus will still need to purchase two subscriptions. Some NRCPR participants may wish to accumulate data and receive comparative reports for multiple facilities (or campuses). These might include facilities that qualify by JCAHO standards as a single entity or other groups of facilities that simply wish to have aggregated results. While the integrity of the NRCPR central database requires that data be maintained on a by-facility basis, participants who wish to receive such aggregated reports will be provided them. These aggregated reports have yet to be developed but the planning for these reports has begun and will be a
