Pediatric CRBSI reduction

Alliance for Pediatric Quality Promotes Four Proven Quality Improvement Initiatives. The goal of the Alliance is to bring about immediate, measurable change in the quality of care provided to children. The Alliance is a partnership of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), Child Health Corporation of America (CHCA) and the National association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI). 

The Alliance advocates the spread of these successful QI initiatives by leveraging the relationships, expertise and resources of the Alliance partners with the aim to improve care for as many children as possible, as quickly as possible. One of the the four QI initiatives is:

NACHRI Catheter-Associated Blood Stream Infections Initiative. In its first 15 months, this childrens hospital collaborative reduced PICU infections by 45 percent, prevented 275 infections, saved $9.3 million, and saved over 30 lives in 29 pediatric intensive care units. In April 2008, participating hospitals reached a 70 percent reduction in PICU infections.
