HQIC Community of Practice Call | Successful Strategies for CLABSI Prevention

Image of a hospital hallway; a man wearing blue scrubs is pushing a gurney toward the viewer and a two female medical staff are walking toward him.

Preventing Central Line-Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSIs) remains a national patient safety priority given its associated harms of increased hospital length of stay, costs, morbidity and a 12 to 25 percent mortality rate. Recent studies have shown that during the COVID-19 pandemic, many hospitals experienced a significant increase in their CLABSI rates. In this recorded session, the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) will highlight two hospitals that have successfully reduced CLABSIs and other heath care-acquired infections. Hospital staff will review successful strategies, including implementation of daily utilization reports and device huddles, importance of hospital leadership support, and use of nurse-driven protocols to support an overall culture of safety.
