CLABSI Jan 16.001

Interventions introduced by units include coated lines, body washes, biopatches, bionectors & parafilm.

There was a perception at the meeting that the most significant reduction followed the introduction of biopatches.

Future pans:

  1. Units using biopatches planning will combine run rate data for future publication.
  2. All units to be surveyed to establish a table of active interventions to place above table in greater context.
  3. Further units expected to submit data in 2016
