CLABSI surveillance beyond ICU


Intravenous literature: Christy, N.E., McFadden, M., White, H.P. and Douglas, C. (2011) Moving into New Frontiers: Fighting Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infections House Wide. AJIC: American Journal of Infection Control. 39(5), p.E34-E35.


In 2006, the ICUs implemented a comprehensive program to reduce CLABSI in the ICUs based on the central line bundle guidelines from the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI). Because of our sustained success, we decided to extend the program to the entire house, to reduce CLABSI house wide in our academic medical center in the District of Columbia.
