Intravenous news: Infection Control Today report “A California hospital reported that its vascular access team has gone nearly seven years without a central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) in any of its peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) lines. The facility has recorded no CLABSIs, which are potentially deadly, in any PICC line placed by the team at Sutter Roseville Medical Center since January 2006, when a new bundle of central line practices and devices was implemented.”
