CDI in Magnet Facilities

Couple quick questions for those of you who are performing CDI in Magnet-designated facilities:

To what department do you report?

Do you report directly to nursing leadership? Indirectly to nursing leadership? No reporting to nursing leadership?

Thanks so much!

  • Here at Medical University of South Carolina, MUSC, our CDI department reports to our Quality Department.  We don't report to nursing leadership. 

    Thanks, Karen Bridgeman, MSN,RN,CCDS

  • Our organization is working toward magnet designation, we report to HIM.


  • We report to HIM and are a magnet hospital. Previously we reported to Nursing. This was not a good fit as our value as CDI specialist was overlooked.  

  • At Wake Forest Baptist Health, we report to Quality/CMO.

  • West Virginia University Medicine, Morgantown WV is a magnet hospital.  CDI reports to HIM and are remote.
