Despite implementation of insertion bundles and continuous education, the institutional CLABSI rate remained above ideal range” Sodek (2016).
Over the past several years, there have been significant advancements made in Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI) reduction rates; however, this “never event” still occurs and can be problematic for hospitals. Our institution has had a multidisciplinary CLABSI Prevention best practice team since 2007 to review evidence based practices to decrease CLABSIs with an ultimate goal of zero. Despite implementation of insertion bundles and continuous education, the institutional CLABSI rate remained above ideal range.
