Description

As of January 2011, all hospitals paid under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) must submit central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) data through the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), a robust infection-surveillance system developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This and other federal initiatives provide an infrastructure to promote collaboration and transparency regarding hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Public reporting of quality data such as CLABSI rates promotes patient safety, focuses on provision of evidence-based care and infection prevention, builds stronger accountability within the health care system, and highlights the necessity of facility support for infection prevention systems and staff. This presentation will review the value of transparency in public reporting of CLABSI rates and will describe the roles of the infusion nurse, along with the health care team and the use of technology, to ensure accurate CLABSI surveillance.

*Note: Participants who attended the live version of this program at the 2011 INS Fall National Academy of Infusion Therapy and One-Day Program in Los Angeles, CA (November 2011) are not eligible to receive contact hours or CRNI® recertification units through this online program.
