Central Line–Related Infections

JAMA. 2011;305(24):2510. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.871

Intensive care units (ICUs) that implemented a quality improvement initiative funded in part by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality sustained zero central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) for up to 2 years (Lipitz-Snyderman A et al. Arch Intern Med. 2011;171[9]:856-858). The ICUs participated in the Michigan Keystone ICU Project, an initiative including the Johns Hopkins University Quality and Safety Research Group's Comprehensive Unit-Based Safety Program and CLABSI Program.
