10-State Project to Study Methods to Reduce Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections in Hospital ICUs
Date:2/19/2009

The project will continue the work that originated at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore and was later implemented statewide in Michigan by the Johns Hopkins Quality and Safety Research Group and the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.
