Evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of central line–associated bloodstream infections

This study assessed the compliance of Belgian home care nurses with good practice recommendations to prevent central line–associated bloodstream infections” Steffens et al (2018).

Abstract:

This study assessed the compliance of Belgian home care nurses with good practice recommendations to prevent central line–associated bloodstream infections. The compliance to 3 care bundles was 0% (0 out of 7), 13.3% (2 out of 15), and 22.2% (2 out of 9), respectively. This finding is important given the increasing number of home care patients with an intravascular catheter and underscores the need for quality improvement strategies to prevent central line–associated bloodstream infections in home care.
