Description

Much headway has been made in reducing central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) in recent years. Unfortunately, most of the effort and surveillance has been limited to patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) environment, and as many as 70% of patients who have a central vascular access device (CVAD)are located outside of the ICU. Though data are sparse, CLABSI rates in this population likely approach or even exceed those of the ICU population. A growing number of outpatients also have CVADs for therapies such as hemodialysis and oncology treatments. The Renal Data System reported a 34% increase in hospitalizations in dialysis patients between 1993 and 2006, with most of these hospitalizations resulting from CLABSI. This presentation will discuss the importance of tracking CLABSI beyond the ICU environment and explore strategies for data collection and reporting.
