- Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) in the neonatal population is a major source of morbidity and mortality.
- The disruption of skin and mucus membranes by the use of invasive devices contributes to the susceptibility of this population.
- In our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the CLABSI rate was continually increasing.
- It became evident that new practice guidelines were necessary to reduce the CLABSI rate in this vulnerable population.
