Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections

In 2005, GNYHA and the United Hospital Fund launched the initial Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI) Collaborative to eliminate these deadly infections from hospital intensive care units. When the initial CLABSI Collaborative ceased data collection in 2007, GNYHA member hospitals had reduced infection rates an average of 54% Collaborative-wide. GNYHA maintains toolkits and resources from the Collaborative for member hospitals to reference.
