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

bes placed into a large vein in a patient's neck, chest or groin to administer medication or fluids or to collect blood samples.

Each year, an estimated 250,000 cases of central line-associated bloodstream infections occur in hospitals in the United States, leading to at least 30,000 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The average additional hospital cost for each infection is over $36,000, which totals over $9 billion in excess costs annually. Thus results from this project can potentially improve care, save lives, and lead to substantial cost savings for participating hospitals and the health care system.

The comprehensive safety program is designed to help ICU staff ensure patient safety. The program, which has been used successfully in more than 100 ICUs in Michigan, includes tools to help health care professionals identify opportunities to reduce potential health care-associated infections and implement policies to make care safer. Within 3 months of implementation in Michigan, the program helped reduce infection rates to zero in more than 50 percent of participating hospitals.

The new 10-state project aims to reduce the average rate of central line-associated blood stream infections in hospitals by 80 percent, from the national average of five infections per 1,000 catheter days to one infection for every 1,000 catheter days. Researchers from HRET, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and the Keystone Center for Patient Safety & Quality in Michigan will work together to provide participating hospitals with the necessary tools and training to reduce these infections in their ICUs. Participating hospitals will implement a checklist to ensure compliance with safety practices, educate staff on evidence-based practices to reduce bloodstream infections, educate staff on team training, provide feedback on infection rates to hospitals and hospital units, and imp
