No Data Indicator (NODI) Codes

All parameters in NetDMR require data entry on the DMR form.  No Data Indicator (NODI) codes are designed to help you avoid reporting violations when data is not available.

If data is not available for some reason, one of the following NODI codes should be entered from the drop down menu below the parameter instead of a numerical value.  And a detailed explanation of why the data is not available should be included in the DMR comment section.

Common NODI Codes:

NODI Code Description
9 Monitoring Not Required/Conditional Monitoring
B Below Detection Level /Not Detected
C No Discharge
X Parameter/Value Not Reported

Please note that the BOLD codes will result in a violation, so only use them in the case of a true violation. 

Below is a list of all available NODI codes.
