HAI - Central Line-Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSIs)

An estimated 250,000 central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSIs) occur in hospitals each year, and as many as 62,000 patients who get these infections die as a result.

HRET, through a contract with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University Quality and Safety Research Group (JHU QSRG) and the Keystone Center for Patient Safety and Quality of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA Keystone) are implementing the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) and interventions to prevent central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI) nationwide.
