									        Healthcare Associated
       Infections (HAI Project)

(Insert your hospital name
In Partnership with IPRO
 Leads a national healthcare quality improvement program,
  implemented locally by an independent network of QIOs in
  each state and territory.

 The federally funded Medicare Quality Improvement Organization
  (QIO) for New York State, under contract with the Centers for
  Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
 IPRO provides a full spectrum of healthcare assessment and
  improvement services that foster the efficient use of resources
  and enhance healthcare quality to achieve better patient

As the QIO for New York State, IPRO works to achieve
the goals of the national QIO program by
 Convening communities of providers, practitioners and
  patients across the state to:
    Share knowledge,
    Spread best practices,
    Achieve rapid, wide-scale improvements in patient

HAI Overview

                APIC Statement on the Cost of
                Hospital Associated Infections

 • 2 million patients per year
    • ~90,000 deaths
    • $4.5-$5.7 billion per year in patient care costs

    HAI Overview

    HAIs rank in the top 10 leading causes of death
                       in the US*

CLABSI Background
• Bloodstream infections (BSIs) are a major cause of
  healthcare-associated morbidity and mortality
   • Up to 35% attributable mortality
   • BSI leads to excess hospital length of stay of 24
• Central Line (CL) use is a major risk factor for BSI
• More than 250,000 central line-associated BSIs
  (CLABSIs) in US yearly
• Rates of CLABSI appear to vary by type of

 CLABSI Overview
                     CLABSIs are Serious but Preventable Infections
• Michigan Keystone Project was able to decrease CLABSIs by 66% in 103
ICUs in Michigan by using basic interventions, such as hand hygiene,
chlorhexidine, and avoidance of a femoral site
• BSI “outbreaks” have been associated with failure to adequately
decontaminate catheter hubs or failure to change them at appropriate intervals
• Use of Antimicrobial Catheters - 2 types with most supporting evidence:
Minocycline-Rifampin & Chlorhexidine–Silver Sulfadiazine
• Ensure utilization of Central Line Insertion (CLIP) bundle:
     • Chlorhexidine for skin antisepsis
     • Maximal sterile barrier precautions (e.g., mask, cap [i.e., similar to those
        worn in the O.R.], gown, sterile gloves, and large sterile drape)
     • Hand hygiene

What do we do here at (hospital
          name) ?
Our current central-line policy is as follows:

Outline your central-line policy and clearly state
what is expected.
• Who can insert a line? Is an assistant required?
• Is a check-list required for each insertion
• If there is a beach in technique, are personnel
empowered to speak-up?

Our current central-line procedure is as
Outline your insertion and maintenance
procedure (checklists) and highlight areas in and
out of compliance
• Review the insertion checklist
• Show data for compliance with items from the
insertion checklist (handwashing, drapes, gowns,
gloves, caps)

Our results are as follows
Outline your results and provide any graphs and data to
demonstrate where you were when you began your
CLABSI project and where you are now.

•Include any interventions which have contributed to
improving care and/or modifying procedures.
• If available, use the IPRO HAI report to show your results
• Run NHSN reports for CLABSI’s and CLIP adherence.
• Share your findings with the staff.

Our Improvement Plan is as follows
Outline the next steps for your organization to
improve or “hold the gains”.
• Has this project been spread to the entire
organization? If not, do you have a target data to
move the project house-wide? If no, consider
setting a date.
• Consider implementing a PDSA to spread your
success to another unit. We recommend
spreading change slowly.
