Effect of multimodal interventions on peripheral IV catheter associated infection

"Serious clinical outcomes (e.g. septic shock, localized infection, and infective endocarditis) contribute to the healthcare burden at the individual, health service and national level" Bhatt et al (2021).

Abstract:

Hospital-acquired Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Serious clinical outcomes (e.g. septic shock, localized infection, and infective endocarditis) contribute to the healthcare burden at the individual, health service and national level.
