CLABSI decrease following implementation of Matching Michigan care bundle http://ctt.ec/dcA9_+ @ivteam #ivteam
AIM: To estimate the incidence of CABSI and the effect of implementing Matching Michigan care bundle.
METHOD: Retrospective analysis of CABSI rates in all neonates with central lines. The reported CABSI rates have varied between 3.2 to 21.8/ 1000 catheter days.(1) The NNAP data on the incidence of CABSI rates 1.8-3.1/1000 is low due to underreporting.(2) We at medway had signed up for the Matching Michigan project aimed at reducing CABSI. We established our baseline CABSI rates at 13.6/1000 catheter days with snap shot audit before implementing the Matching Michigan project in 2011 and our CABSI rates have been below 10/1000 catheter days for three consecutive years. We are the first unit to publish the CABSI rates over a three year period in United Kingdom. The results are as follows: fetalneonatal;99/Suppl_1/A69-c/T1T1T1 Abstract PC.97 Table Comparative indicators 2011 2012 2013 Patients 141 151 154 Gestation
CONCLUSIONS: Our study establishes the first UK data on CABSI rates and shows that the incidence of CABSI decreased following the implementation of Matching Michigan care bundle.
