The goal of this intervention is to decrease CLABSI incidence house-wide by standardizing line selection criteria, care, maintenance, and evaluation for blood cultures” Khalid et al (2018).

Background:

CLABSIs are serious infections associated with increased length of stay and mortality. Variability existed in facility practices regarding line choice, care, and maintenance of central venous lines (CVL). The goal of this intervention is to decrease CLABSI incidence house-wide by standardizing line selection criteria, care, maintenance, and evaluation for blood cultures.
