         Xi'an No.1 Hospital has been designated as a national sentinel hospital for influenza surveillance since August 2009. As a department responsible for influenza surveillance, the Department of Health and Epidemic Prevention has first established a leading group for influenza surveillance at the request of provincial and municipal CDC, developed a surveillance program on the basis of actual situation of the hospital, and assign the surveillance works to departments: Emergency Department, Department of Respiration and Pediatrics are responsible for sampling; Clinical Laboratory are responsible for sample collecting, prevention and presentation; Department of General Affairs are responsible for preparing delivery cars and drivers. In order to implement the working requirements of Shaanxi CDC and complete the annual tasks of influenza surveillance, the Department of Health and Epidemic Prevention actively communicate with the surveillance departments, thoroughly investigate the actual working conditions and difficulties of the frontline staff for timely adjustment of the work processes; To reduce the work intensity of sampling doctor, the Health Prevention Section has overcome their own difficulties to take part of the workloads from clinicians; To fully arouse the working enthusiasm of the frontline staff, the hospital has timely paid influenza surveillance subsidies to them each year.
         As a national sentinel hospital for influenza surveillance, the quality and efficiency of surveillance works must be ensured to guarantee the quality and quantity of influenza surveillance in Xi'an and Shaanxi Province. For six years, thanks to the support and care given by the leadership, we gradually forayed into the works that we haven't engaged in and exerted more efforts than our peers. Therefore, the influenza surveillance works proceeds more and more smoothly. By the joint efforts and tacit cooperation of the Department of Health and Epidemic Prevention and other related departments, Xi'an No.1 Hospital was rated as the "Advanced Sampling Unit for Influenza Surveillance in Xi'an" in 2013, the "Advanced Management Unit for Influenza Surveillance in Xi'an” in 2014 and the "Advanced Unit for Influenza Surveillance in Xi'an" in 2015.
        The recognition and commendation from the provincial and municipal leadership of the CDC encourages us to continuously make unremitting efforts, accumulate working experience and facilitate innovations to achieve better results.
