             CLABs Myths
   Our infection rates are below national
    benchmarks - which is good enough.
   CLABs are inevitable. It is the price we pay
    for sophisticated, complex care of severely
    ill patients.
   CLABs are benign and readily treated with
   CLABs are a common accompaniment of
    complex care and covered by outlier
           Lessons Learned

   We can come surprisingly close to
    eliminating    hospital     acquired
    infections with determination as
    opposed to resources
   Our data must not only be reportable
    but actionable
       Save lives
       Reduce costs
       Reduce error and waste
             How We Did It

   Make data actionable
   Observe variations in work practices
   Real time problem solving of origins of
   Implement and test practice changes
        Make Data Actionable
   Start small
   Use and monitoring of evidence based
    patient care practices or “bundles” with
    reporting back of data to end users
   Counter measures generated by the people
    who do the work
       Process that generates sustainable fixes
       Avoid “workarounds” that are constantly
       Set a time to achieve goal

   It is not good enough that our infection rates
    are below national benchmarks.

   CLABs are preventable, they are not an
    inevitable consequence of sophisticated,
    complex care that we provide to our severely
    ill patients.
           Multi-disciplinary CLABs Team

 CLABs can be eliminated by determination as
  opposed to additional resources.
 Strict adherence to evidence based patient
  care practices, called “bundles” that will
  improve patient safety and reduce adverse
  patient outcomes is required.
             Multi-disciplinary CLABs Team

   Patient hospital length of stay, morbidity and
    mortality can be reduced through prevention
    of CLABs.

   We can reduce the Medical Center’s costs
    incurred for the care of patients with CLABs.

                 CLABs Prevention
   Use and monitoring of evidence based patient care practices
    or “bundles” with reporting back of data to end users
    resulted in the rapid and sustained elimination or decreased
    incidence of CLABs on many units
   Limited additional resources were necessary for the success
    of this initiative
   Efforts were effective for all areas of the hospital where
    central lines are inserted
   As compliance with insertion bundle improves, line
    maintenance has assumed a greater role in the prevention
    of CLABs
   Culture change regarding goal of zero CLABs infections is
    applicable for all hospital acquired infections and patient
    safety issues

GNYHA-UHF CLABs Collaborative
• Systematic model for change that would

  – Meet needs of hospitals within the
  – Use existing staffing and financial
      GNYHA/UHF CLABs Collaborative
•    Hospital leadership involvement and commitment
•    Interdisciplinary teams / Physician and Nurse champions
•    Evidence-based interventions: Implemented “Central Line Bundle”
•    3 learning sessions: Reviewed key interventions for eliminating CLAB infections,
     guidelines for inserting central line, materials needed, maintaining central lines,
     hospital best practices, and approaches to sustaining improvements.
•    Bi-weekly conference calls: Shared information / tools specific to reducing CLAB
 •   Collaborative web site for information-sharing:
 •   “Expert on Call” clinical consultant
 •   Reinforcement of “zero tolerance” for CLAB infections
•    Standardized Materials: Teams developed and used standardized data collection
     and definitions
•    Root Cause Analysis (RCA): Real time RCAs encouraged to identify reasons for
     CLABs and develop solutions for prevention
•    Tracking Success: Aggregate and hospital-specific results reported monthly and
     site visits made by Collaborative sponsors to identify areas in need of support
       Central Line Bundle: Hospital teams identified the “central line bundle” as a strategy to prevent infection
          during central line insertion. Components include: hand hygiene, use of maximal barrier precautions,
                       chlorhexidine skin use, site of line placement, and review of line necessity.
      All necessary supplies should be available at the patient’s bedside when needed (creation of central line insertion kit).

        central line days
•       Mean last three months (July through September 2006) = 1.76 infections / 1,000
•       43% decrease during the course of the study period (p Value = 0.015)
Maintaining Zero CLAB Infections during 15-month Study Period2:
